Washington, D.C. -- Today, the Global Campaign for Education-US Chapter launched the revamped Lesson For All (LFA) which is two units of 8 lessons plans focused on teaching U.S. students about the right to an education for all and the barriers that many young people around the world encounter when trying to go to school. The Lesson for All, written by Illinois iEARN-US classroom teacher Donna Roman, includes K-3 and 4-6 units that both have four lessons that involve discussion, activities, multimedia and assessments. All lessons are mapped to Reading, Writing and Speaking and Listening Standards in the Common Core State Standards and the Global Competency Matrix.
“When Dr. Gragert sought my involvement in this latest project I did not hesitate for a moment,” said author Donna Roman. “As I constructed the Lesson for All units, I not only developed my knowledge on innumerable subjects, but, more importantly, I found myself changed in both heart and mind. What I learned simultaneously reinforced my faith in humanity, and my alarm for the many children excluded from their basic rights.”
