Our discussions today were fantastic. Students were, for the most art engaged and on task and respectful to each other. Students recognized that sometimes the global issue we want to discuss are actually an entirely different issue under the surface. For example, we spoke about world hunger and quickly realized that world hunger is, in reality world poverty. We then explored the statistical data about poverty in America and the rest of the world and talked about solutions we might use to help alleviate this problem.
