Meet a few of our teachers, who are partnering with World Savvy to transform learning in the classroom:
- Sarah Moore transformed lectures on basic economics into relevant and engaged learning by using the prison system as an entry-point to this subject. "Every single one of my students knows someone incarcerated," says Mooore, "This lense is so much more interesting, necessary."
- Educator, Julie Lovie, comments on the benefits of project-based learning in a classroom setting: "Project-based learning helps my students see a real life connection to what they are studying, and it allows them to have a voice. When students engage in a project, they are required to take more ownership over their work. It also helps change the dynamic in the classroom when we are learning together."
