Dear Division 16,
Some of you will remember that last year we completed an assignment where Division 16 students contributed photos on the theme of “Community” as inspired by a feature in the English newspaper, The Guardian. This feature is called “Witness” and asks members of the public to contribute photos, videos or writing in response to a theme. You can see the pictures submitted by last year’s students on our blog here: https://dickensdiv16.com/2015/04/10/community-photo-project/
Guess what, this month’s Guardian Witness project is “Are you helping solve climate change?”
As this is something that has been woven through the start of our Hydrosphere unit, I’d like you to think of a response to this assignment and post your answer to the question here on the blog.
In order to complete this assignment, you will need to look at the website for the question and to read the responses contributed so far by the British public. Here is the link to the assignment on The Guardian webpage: https://witness.theguardian.com/assignment/5638a458e4b006cc60757183 You can see the assignment, and the 12 contributions by the public so far.
For your response, please answer BOTH of the questions below:
- Post what you are doing to help solve climate change. This could be a way of thinking, some specific actions or decisions you or your family have made.
- Respond to one of the contributions on the website that have been posted and evaluate whether you think this contribution will make a difference, and whether this is something you would consider doing with your family or in your community.
I look forward to your responses!
