Please plan soon to engage your students in real-world and issues – allow them to create individually or collaboratively – as in “Interdependence.” Allow them to choose, research and respond to the many themes about their interconnectedness: global and local – such as social justice, women’s and children’s rights, ecology and environment, poverty, civil society and democracy.
