Blog Action Day 2009

Last year, I participated for the first time in Blog Action Day – a day when bloggers write about the same topic from whatever perspective they see fit. I shared this post on poverty and what we should be doing about it in education.

This year’s theme for Blog Action Day is climate change, and I will again be participating. So on October 15, check back here as I share some thoughts on the effects our schools have on the environment, both positive and negative.

    Thank you for sharing this opportunity. How did it go last year with your efforts to get your students enaged in empathy and world poverty?

      It actually went fairly well. I was able to use several QuickWrites (5-minute writing session at the beginning of class) to get students thinking about poverty, both on a local and global level. We were able to have a couple of interesting discussions about them, as well, which I think helped some students shift some faulty paradigms.
