  • Grade 6: Advocating for Global Causes

    Sixth graders, inspired by the book A Long Walk to Water, became advocates for change in the world with an assignment that had them researching, creating solutions, and connecting with other leaders. A Long Walk to Water tells the story of one man making a big difference for his community in South Sudan. Stemming from this book, students were asked to identify a problem of any scale in the world today that they care about. Teacher Cristina Peña says, “I asked them to research the problem, assess the credibility of their sources, create a solution with action steps, and write a letter to a change-maker who also cares about the same issue. Students had complete freedom of what topic to choose and which angle or position to support, as long as it was backed with credible research.”
