Diving into the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, students are asked to choose a topic that requires immediate attention with the focus on changing the course of history through action – addressing how history would be different if your issue/challenge/topic were not addressed, and action not taken. Under the Sustainable Development goals, students are to research a topic that they are passionate about in solving a "real world issue."
Within this project students will develop a statement of purpose, research historical background and present a proposal to a "fake" panel of investors with the hopes of securing funding to change the course of history in addressing a UN Sustainable Development Goal.
This project includes a project description, rubric and notes sheet to be completed while listening to their classmates proposals.
A number of my students have gone on to bring their projects to life, after building their proposals and realizing that they (as students) can make differences in their communities.
This assignment can be completed with or without the day to day workbook (sold separately at the following link: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Critical-Action-Project-Workbook-UN-Sustainable-Dev-Goals-3956765) depending on the time frame that you would like to apply to this project.
