m.a.d 2010

So, what makes a difference?

The make.a.difference project is an intensive, year-long 8th grade project in which students focus on a person or organization who has made a positive difference in the world. The project involves research, report writing, letter writing, reflection, community service, technology, the arts, oral presentation skills, and a final project that includes artifacts, a visual, and a toolbox that their person or organization would use to make a positive difference. The goal is by learning about people who make a difference, students will then start making a difference on their own and be the change they wish to see in the world. blog
