Conversation Brings Compassion
What experiences help students learn to care about the news & what happens in the world?
If you've been reading my blog, you know we connected a world issues class and a 2nd grade class to Karachi, Pakistan the end of September.
Now both classes have emailed me wondering how they can send a care package or do something to help their peers in Pakistan affected by the earthquake.
It was just a simple conversation, really, those connections two weeks ago. Yet look at the concern now from these students. All of a sudden they know someone in Pakistan and what a difference it makes! If more students could participate in global videoconferences, maybe they too could learn to care about the world around them & want to make a difference!
