So, you want to have students write about what they care about–but how do you get them to come up with an idea?
This 2-day lesson challenges students to identify problems in their community and the world that they care deeply about. The first day, they will circulate the room, creating giant lists of problems they see in the world. The second day, they will use their peers to talk about each topic from their personal list to discover which would be the best for them to write about. Both days include handouts to help students anchor their thoughts and move forward.
Get your students moving, talking, and writing about something they believe in, and the rest of your unit is sure to run so much more smoothly.
