New video resources for integrating "Finding Solutions to Hunger" Teacher Guide in the K-12 Classroom
Kids Can Make A Difference (KIDS), a project of iEARN (International Education and Resource Network), the leader in online collaborative project-based learning, announced two new videos designed to help K-12 educators integrate the resources within the KIDS Teacher Guide, Finding Solutions to Hunger: Kids Can Make A Difference by Stephanie Kempf. These videos demonstrate what creative teachers have accomplished within their classrooms using the Teacher Guide. These videos offers concrete suggestions on how to introduce lessons from the Teacher Guide on the nature of hunger, food distribution patterns and root causes of hunger in the US and around the world.
The videos give specific examples of how to start to address the issue, and how lessons from the guide can be integrated into classrooms. The Teacher Guide is available in print or download in English and Spanish.
Teachers can have their students interact on these activities and issues worldwide through the collaborative project platform of iEARN.
“I wish I had been able to do more with my students with regard to Finding Solutions to Hunger, but in the fall we will continue in new ways. Over the summer, as part of our professional development at school, I will be part of a workshop describing global educational aspects of our curriculum in Middle School. Describing iEARN projects will be a big part of it, and Finding Solutions to Hunger is right at the top.
One of the best parts of this past year's work has been getting to know the teachers involved in the program. I look forward to extending that work to many of the other teachers and students involved in Finding Solutions to Hunger this coming term. We can only go forward.”
--Mary Brownell, Teacher, Philadelphia, PA.
