Review for Kids in Need Foundation, Dayton, OH, USA
Our district has had extensive budgetary cutbacks with the recent downtown in the economy. I wanted to enhance my students learning through creative activities, but was unable to do so. The Kids in Need grant allowed us to integrate academic and leadership skills in a creative, life-changing way. We are studying the role public service announcements play in societal change. The students are looking at needed areas of improvement in our school and community. They are researching and developing public service announcements that can be used in print (newspapers), on local radio stations, or on a local cable TV channel. This process has give my students the opportunity to take on a leadership role in a creative process, while practicing the basics of reading, writing, and research.
