Students can complete the projects individually or in groups.
The Padlet exploration can be done as a whole class or as independent work. For students who need support working independently, teachers can assign them three youth activists to explore.
If students have trouble selecting one activist, they can pick the person who is closest in age to them.
Students can choose to go outside of the Padlet for information, but they should use the C.R.A.A.P. test for determining the validity of their source. A video explaining the test is linked in the Padlet.
