Maggie Lauder & Joe Kim – Show #64 – The Four Liter Challenge: Teaching Students About Water Poverty
Maggie Lauder helped to write the curriculum guide for The Four Liters Challenge. Both Maggie and Joe Kim have tested this challenge in their classrooms in California. The water poverty challenge is based upon the See, Judge, Act model, which is a curricular model used in the Catholic church, which helps open students eyes to water poverty for those used to easy access to clean water. This challenge helps students act in response to what they have learned. Listen now to learn more about this cross-curricular challenge that anyone can join.
