George Mayo, an 8th grade teacher in a school just outside of Washington D.C. will be joining us. Mr. Mayo has been an early collaborator on our http://youthtwitter.com site, and his students are getting the word out for a Global Darfur Awareness Event to take place on March 6th: Here’s George Mayo’s introduction to this project:
A group of students started this Darfur Awareness blog as part of a classroom project: http://stopgenocide.edublogs.org/ Students were really into this topic and have decided they would like to continue, even though projects are officially over. So we have teamed up with Wendy Drexler’s 3rd grade students in Florida and are co-sponsoring this Global Darfur Awareness Event:http://manyvoicesdarfur.blogspot.com/ Project bloghttp://stopgenocide.wikispaces.com/ Project wiki Mission Statement: Many Voices for Darfur Blog This is a global collaborative effort involving k-12 students from around the globe to raise awareness about the genocide in
Darfur. On March 6th, we are asking students from around the world to visit our Many Voices for Darfur Blog and leave thoughtful, well-written comments.
