PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This WebQuest is geared toward advanced students in 10th, 11th, and 12th grade.

Students are asked to take on the roles of employees working for a Non-Profit Organization. After reading Life in the Iron Mills and watching the 20/20 documentary "A Hidden America: Children of the Mountains", students are asked to research poverty, based on Ruby Payne's book, "Understanding Poverty."

Students then create a program geared to help people overcome poverty and attain upward mobility. Students integrate technology to create a website and presentation to ultimately "sell" their program idea to "bidders" in their class. (In my classroom, the group with the most bidders earn extra credit!).

Help teach your students social responsibility, compassion, and 21st century Employability Skills and Technology Literacy through this collaborative project!
