My students need tickets and transportation to a venue showing the educational film He Named Me Malala, in order to understand further the state of education globally.
My students are part of a Global Issues class. They learn public speaking skills in model UN simulations, as well as investigate the world and examine perspectives. As they do so, It is inspiring for them to see teens, like Malala, taking action and making change.
My students come from all over the world.
At our high school we have students from 54 countries speaking 27 languages. Our students all graduate college and career ready and globally competent. We will have students in attendance who have lived in one place their whole life, and others who are new to the U.S. The school fosters a culture of curiosity and tolerance. The students are respectful and learn a lot from each other. It is a unique and exciting public school.
Three products emerge from the Global Issues class all sophomores are required to take: public speaking skills in model UN simulations, Take Action volunteer projects, and globally aware and informed citizens. As the students do Model UN simulations, the millennium goals of the UN are a main focus of the class. The students look to examine perspectives and investigate how they can make a meaningful impact on the world they live in. They are not just passive observers, but stakeholders in what they want to world to be like. To see teens like Malala, in "He Named Me Malala", is not only inspiring but powerful. Students will see teens can take action. Watching this film will lead to a simulation regarding education equality. It will also play into the required volunteer portion of the class. It will be a great example of how being globally competent and involved in the community can ensure a better world.
The film, "He Named Me Malala", is really important for our students.
Many of the students are asylum seekers, ELL students who have overcome their own major obstacles. While the other students have lived in one place their whole lives, this film will cultivate a great sense of possibility. Some students will really identify with Malala, while others will be very inspired by her. To see a young, female, Muslim make such a difference will be invaluable to all of my students.Read More
