No More Waiting on the World to Change: Leveraging Technology to promote Global Citizenship & Advocacy 🌎
In the hopes of applying both a local and global lens to the issue of economic inequality, my French IV students examined the end of Temporary Protected Status for Haitian recipients and the economic impacts of this status change on Boston Families. Using Adobe Post and Spark Video, they created advocacy posters and monologues in French from the perspective of children, parents, and business owners affected by the end of TPS. To prepare for this exhibit work, students canvassed predominately Haitian neighborhoods of Boston to hear their stories.

This year, my AP French students are using FlipGrid to virtually connect with our exchange school, Lycée Saint Marc, in Lyon, France where they are engaging in conversation about the impact of climate change in both cities. Here the emphasis has also been on collective and individual efforts to address global warming. My presentation will focus on the applications and online tools that I incorporate to prepare my students for this work and to get their projects "exhibition ready." Attendees will see samples of student work and gain access to rubrics, project guidelines, and playlists.

Student exhibitions were presented at the EMK Institute in Boston as a part of the 2019 Humanities Workshop. The 2021 Humanities Workshop on Climate Change will be fully virtual.
