Making a Better World Together

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Four teachers, over a hundred students, and three rural school districts join together to move from despair to hope to action. Our mission: to make the world a better place --- together. Connected through Online Dystopic Literature Circles, students in three districts examine what’s wrong with the world, vision and learn how to make a difference through online cross-curricular learning experiences, and take action in their own communities and in the world. We’ll share the process of our journey, results in student achievement and engagement, and demonstrations of student learning. And together, we’ll make the world a better place.
