We are in the library today conducting research on youth activism.
Students are researching actual youth activists, largely since we are unfamiliar with them. A link to a reputable website addressing the activist should be emailed to me.
Additionally, youth activists wouldn't exist if there were not problems in the world. Students are also tasked with identifying articles that address community issues. An article of those issues should be emailed to me as well.
Today we are beginning our unit in Community Issues, beginning with youth activism. We are examining the Nobel acceptance speech from Malala Yousafzai.
