Youth Activists Around the World

Over the course of the school year so far, students in Mrs. Kostiuk’s class have worked on more student-directed learning and taking more leadership roles in it.  In SEL, they have been learning about youth activists in the world (past and present).  They were put into groups to read and learn about a specific activist.  Afterwards, they had to write a quality one-sentence summary about their activist.  Then, they did rotations where people from each group shared information about their activists and recorded it on a large sheet of paper to compare.  Finally, they gathered back together as a whole class to discuss the common character strengths these young activists share.   Students did a great job through this process!
