Purpose: To investigate and analyze an issue and communicate the perspectives involved, and then to design a way to take action and have a positive impact on your issue.
Essential Questions (each project addresses all questions):
Addressed in speech: What is my problem? What is the impact? What are the perspectives surrounding this problem? (or Why does the problem persist?) Why should we care?
And then, addressed in solutionary action: How can one person create change? How do you measure impact? What are the obstacles to creating change? Why do some people fear or resist change?
