Fame, Fortune, and Philanthropy

With your middle schoolers, develop concepts such as philanthropy, civic responsibility, community service, and common good. Discuss famous philanthropists and what we can each give of our time, talent and treasure to better our communities. Learners read a USA Today article and create charts to track the biggest givers of 2001. The concepts are valuable, so it would be worthwhile to update content (younger celebrities, newer data) to add relevance.
