2023 Middle School Challenge

Reserve your tickets!

 

A group of 70 DC students has the rare opportunity to spend 10 weeks working after school in small groups with some of the city’s finest educators, the One World Teacher Leader Team. These elite educators were chosen based on how they implemented the One World Program in their classrooms. The students choose social justice issues that matter to them and then are led through every step of the writing process.

 

As students learn about writing high school-level essays and presenting with the proper pacing, poise, and posture, they also are taught how to collaborate with peers and strive for excellence. Plan now to see the inspiring outcomes of their work on April 28, 2023.
