ECSL Participants Investigate Poverty

Following our winter workshop (where we established the essential need to address poverty), educators gathered for a deep investigation into this pressing issue. ECSL invited community organization representatives working on poverty-related initiatives to a panel discussion. We’re pleased to share the video footage from this event, and we invite you to bring it back to your classrooms. This resource will help students see the power of using interviewing as a form of investigation in order to become more deeply informed about an issue- thus being better able to engage in authentic social action towards this cause.
