We are Wiley 5th Graders

Students in the 5th grade read the book A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park. Students immersed themselves in the Global Matrix (Investigate the World, Recognize Perspectives, Communicate Ideas, and Take Action) using a variety of print and digital media to explore global issues ranging from refugees, to education, to water quality. A co-teaching team (Classroom, Special Education, and AIG teachers) facilitated a rigorous critical thinking, creativity and self-discovery unit. Societal and environmental issues exposed in the book allowed students to explore other countries facing similar issues. Collaboratively, students took action by designing campaigns promoting local and global outreach opportunities.
