Will you: 

As a student in middle school or elementary school, what issues are important to you?

As a student in middle school or elementary school, what issues are important to you?

Teachers I ask this or a similar question to students each year.

Sometimes we spend months creating documentaries about issues students think are important.

You may want to do a documentary project, and you can create discussions to explore possible topics.

Hi Ms. Scholl,

I'm a middle school teacher in Maryland. I saw your question to your students and thought I'd say hello. I ask a similar question to my students each year. Last year, students spent a few months creating documentaries about issues they thought were important. We're getting ready to start our documentary project again in a few weeks and are just now exploring possible topics.

We'll have to get our students to share their ideas with one another. As we get closer to starting our project we will be in touch! Here's a link to our documentaries we created last year:
