Solving a Problem in Society That We Care About

In this project, students are going to be working in teams to solve a problem in society that they really care about.  Students may choose things like solving homelessness, global warming, bees disappearing, or any other problem they believe that impacts their community or society in general in a negative way. They will use the templates within this project to identify the problem, its main components, and possible solutions. Students will then come up with an action plan detailing how to get involved and document their experience making a difference. Team members will divide the work amongst themselves and make sure that they share their research and analysis with the other team members before they write up their results in their final report. Project management should be done via tasks that clearly attribute chores to specific team members and be supervised by the team leader, who will be picked from the students in the team and will rotate weekly.
