Change the World - A Class that Should be Added to the Core Curriculum
I just came across this website after a colleague shared her daughter had a related assignment. It shares 101 Ways to Change the World for a variety of audiences and purposes through several books available for free.
As I took a look at these books, it got me thinking, of all things, this should be a class at the heart of the curriculum and students definitely should be given time each day to change the world. What a great way to get passion-based learning off the ground and in turn start at an early age with guidance on how to make the world a better place.
I'm sure innovative educators and leaders wouldn't have too much trouble figuring out a way to make that happen. In fact, I bet some already are. What can/are you doing with your students to change the world?
