Freebee Friday: Doing Good by Doing Well
While the Web can supply an abundance of lesson plans for math, science and the other mainstream subjects, it doesn’t do very well in teaching about life, generosity and helping those in need. That’s where Project Paradigm comes it. Sponsored by a slew of corporate giants and the Red Cross, Paradigm stresses collaboration, creativity and especially kindness to make a better tomorrow for students, teachers and the rest of the planet. To start, there’re a bunch of online lesson plans and supporting material to help get this message out. Then, there’s the money. The non-profit offers innovative and creative students and teachers cash for submitting and sharing problem-solving lessons that get kids to actually work together to identify and solve a major global social problem.
