Philanthropy, You, and Your World
Students become familiar with the characteristics of philanthropic people and organizations. Students work collaboratively to develop questions to interview a philanthropic organization and report the information gathered at the interview back to their classmates. They learn to write a business letter and a follow-up thank-you letter.
Students will gain a basic understanding of philanthropic characteristics and how they pertain to their own lives.
Students will learn about the work of a local nonprofit organization.
The purpose of this lesson is to have students develop appropriate interview questions, interview a philanthropic organization, and present information to the class. This lesson is a continuation from Lesson One: Characterizing Philanthropic People.
The purpose of this lesson is to develop an appreciation for the importance of follow-up letters.
