Deepen students’ investigation of the issues within the context of course content using these WE activities. They are ready-to-use resources with teacher instruction and corresponding worksheets for students.
Have students look at the problem tree graphic organizer, which helps guide students in thinking about and articulating the issue as a problem, and then going further by breaking down the causes and effects of the problem.
Have students use the solutions graphic organizer and Needs Assessment worksheet to consider how to solve the problem presented through the issues, as well as the possible outcomes of the solution.
As part of their service project, students should summarize their learning to educate their classmates on the issue they have investigated, using multimedia or print materials that synthesize and analyze the issue on local and global levels.
