This is some of my best work from this school year - portions of the lesson are to be published! Expect students to be self-directed for over one week while immersed in the project-based learning activity that addresses such relevant and meaningful topics as gender, the economy, foreign policy, and culture!
This inquiry-based collaboration tasks students (working in partners or small groups) with first deeply examining a gender-based issue in the world today - and then conducting an investigation pertaining to the role of globalization as it relates to this issue!
The investigation culminates with the 21st-century skill packed process of creating an RSA-style animation as a means for students to demonstrate their learning in an innovative manner that requires critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, collaboration, and flexibility.
Everything is included in the project! It was a hit this year with both my 9th and 11th-12th grade classes.
