Looking for a project that emphasizes how each student has the power to make a difference in their own community? Give the Seasons of Giving Research Project a go! In this project, students are assigned a specific charity organization of the teacher's (or the class's) choosing. From there, they research to learn more about what the nonprofit organization benefits, how much of each donation goes to the cause, where they are located, etc., all while working on their persuasive arguments, interpersonal communication skills, and their presentation skills. Students will produce a final skit to showcase the information their teams have found and to persuade the audience into donating their money to the cause.
