Lesson Plan:Teaching the Lesson: Activity 1

Activity 1: Groups Finalize Research Findings

The objective of this part of the lesson is to identify and prioritize key issues of concern to youth. Begin by introducing and summarizing the expectations for the class that day. Charge each focus group with the task of preparing a written summary and a visual organizer that reports on its research.
Provide time for each focus group to meet, review their research findings to date, conduct any additional research they feel is needed, and prepare a 10-minute presentation. Each group also is to prioritize their concerns and select two issues to recommend for the class Student Voices Agenda.
Work not finished in class can be assigned as homework.
