middle school global concerns workshop, november 2008
The Middle School participated in a full day Global Concerns workshop
on Friday, November 14. The workshop challenged students' critical
thinking, communication, and listening skills and it will give them an
opportunity to examine some of the most important global issues of our
time with their peers.
Throughout the course of the day, the students were presented with
facts and information from specialists in the international field; they
worked in small groups to design a strategy for various countries; they
were provided with country information packets, statistics and other
resources to serve as references throughout the activity; and they were
given the opportunity to present their country's plans to the entire
Middle School at the end of the day.
