Homelessness/ Poverty Project...

...another project I started that is growing and taking a life of its own...

"Fresh Eyes"...who has them? What does it mean to have "fresh eyes"?
 
lesson...
It first began after being moved by a music video...this lead to a lesson on poverty and homelessness... which turned into student research, essays and  all school assembly presentations...this then lead to bake sales and student projects and  a collaboration between a national organization  Back On My Feet. http://www.backonmyfeet.org/
We are now collaborating with another local school and Back On My Feet for a spring relay event!
I am proud and happy about this project as it tries to solve a serious problem and turn around a very sad situation into a positive experience for all. It has woven in critical thinking skills, empathy, networking and activism!
