Product Description
This activity is designed to spark curiosity in students as it gives them the opportunity to thoroughly explore a topic of interest through reading an article, viewing a TED Talk, writing a summary, and sharing their discoveries with their peers. It includes a brainstorming activity to help them choose a topic, and a student handout and checklist to keep students focused and on task. Lastly, students create a project of their choice inspired by what they've learned to share with their peers. Projects range from writing to the TED Talk speaker to creating a poster or video to raise awareness about an important issue. It also helps me get to know what my students are passionate about!
