TeachOne: King's Words of Challenge

These lessons and projects give tools and tips for discovering our spark and celebrating the diverse contributions we all can make. Students internalize "I matter in my communities."  As a service project, secondary youth design and take a poll to find out what issues others care about and what talents and interests they have. They share the results and recommend community action and ways to connect to community resources. Younger students share their personal talents and interests with people of another generation to bring joy and connection to others in the community.
