This project links with the film "Pay It Forward." It is one you use after watching the film to build community, compassion, and group work skills. It also focuses on academic writing skills and presentation skills.
The project includes the following sections:
- Task Description
- Group Information
- Project Outline
- Proposal Guidelines
- Revising and Editing Checklist
- Presentation Description
- Evaluation Rubric
- Example PIF Proposal
Please note that this project is similar to "The Kindness Project" which you can find here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Kindness-Project-Building-Community-and-Compassion-2252053. However, "The Kindness Project" is much longer and uses other texts, not the movie "Pay It Forward." Therefore, this project (the PIF project) may be easier for you to implement in your class depending on the tie you have available to you.
