Global Awareness Lesson - Attix

For my global awareness lesson, I chose a project from ePals. The particular assignment that I chose was titled "Kites Around the World."

There is no disputing that students today are digital natives, and much prefer to complete classwork, homework, and other assignments using technology. I think that, as educators, we should…See More
