Community organizations make an impact everyday: now students can too! Students will learn to analyse a problem, and become active global citizens, using this authentic method! The new Alberta Curriculum calls for students to be active global citizens and engage in identifying and solving problems in their own communities. In this facilitated workshop, participants will walk through a method used by non-profit organizations when designing projects to tackle community issues. Using this authentic problem analysis tool, students will learn how to analyse a problem, and address the root causes of an issue, rather than the symptoms. The tool has been modified to be kid-friendly, and ready to use in your classroom!
