Student Teacher


In this lesson, students will be able to show what they have learned thus far about poverty. On laptops, students will generate and input a list of words that they think describes poverty using an app called Answer Garden . Answer Garden is an interactive tool that allows for students to give feedback in short answer form. As words are added, the most frequently used words will appear larger than the less frequently used words. If the teacher does not have access to Answer Garden or laptops, the students can write each word on a sticky note and place them on the board in front of the classroom. In order to truly understand how people living in poverty feel, students will participate in a food simulation activity. Students will reflect on their feelings after the simulation activity to understand how those may feel who live in poverty. This lesson was developed by Jena Hazelwood as part of their completion of the North Carolina Global Educator Digital Badge program. This lesson plan has been vetted at the local and state level for standards alignment, Global Education focus, and content accuracy.
