Product Description
While reading William Kamkwamba's The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, I use the included transcript from a NPR podcast called "Bored and Brilliant - A Challenge to Disconnect from Your SmartPhone" along with the writing activity (which I designed along the ACES constructed writing model) to get students thinking about the role technology plays in our society, and how its absence may have, in fact, benefitted William in having the time and inclination to build his windmill for his impoverished home town.
