Reflections are student authored primary sources written about experiences with cultural, local, and global issues. Reflections are written by middle and high school students and are selected from entries to our annual One World Writing Program.
Each unit includes project-based Learning Activities - lesson plans built around key phrases quoted from a One World Reflection. These “Reflection prompts” express the insights, perspectives, and observations made by the young person who wrote the Reflection. Learning Activities allow for deeper exploration of the topics touched on in the Reflection. Activities are engaging and interdisciplinary.
Each unit includes 4-5 standard Unit Resources, each of which is grounded in the student-written Reflection. These resources are designed to provide teachers with assessments to measure learning and comprehension.
