Presentation on Human Trafficking
MYP Individuals and Societies
Yrs. 2 & 3
Both the Year 2 and Year 3 (7th and 8th Graders) Individuals and Societies classes were fortunate to attend a presentation by Elizabeth Murphy from the Intercommunity Peace and Justice Center today on human trafficking. The Year 2 classes are just wrapping up a unit on trade and the Year 3 classes are working on the roles of citizenship in conjunction with their unit on the Constitution and Civics. The presentation hit critical learning points for both and was an active session of inquiry, participation, and discussion. The presentation included the key concepts of change, causation, connection, and most importantly, responsibility! The students were challenged to be inquirers and thinkers. The Year 3 students are writing persuasive letters to the CEO's of Apple, Intel and Microsoft to encourage them to change the way they acquire the minerals used in the production of electronics.
