Here is everything you need to launch your own Few Bad Apples project. If you do this project please let us know so that we can share with the students that their work has inspired others to do the same.
You will find all resources as well as final projects by the students. If you have any thoughts or feedback please leave a comment and we will share that out with the students.
Lisa Barnes, an 8th grade language arts teacher took a chance. She pushed her comfort zone and took an idea she developed to a new level. She had the kids move from just research and regurgitation which so often happens in schools into a phase of Doing Something! They students had to act on their own learning.
It was interesting to work with them briefly when I had time.
They did not believe that it mattered.
They did not believe that their voice held any power.
Some still are not quite sure that their voice matters.
However, they stuck with it and through the journey they found their voice.
This week I will be sharing a post each day for five days. Today the goal is to simply introduce you to the project. I will share a short podcast we recorded so you can hear from the teacher herself about this project. There is also an project outline form.
I will also share a few other things as well. This is the setup. The next four days I will share out the projects the students developed. They are really good. We have all types of students involved in this project. This is what makes it so special.
Please reach out. Leave comments, ask questions, let the students what you think of their work. The more we can bring back to the classroom the more powerful this all becomes.
