GEMS 7th Grade EL Education Better World Project

Last year, as part of EL Education’s 25th Anniversary, a GEMS' 7th grade project was chosen by a national committee of students, teachers, and leaders as one of 18 exceptional Better World Projects from 50 submissions by student-teacher teams across the country. Better World Projects encouraged schools to engage in work that bridges differences, joins scholarship with service, and helps students take ownership of their learning—in short, projects that exemplify the learning happening in EL Education classrooms every day. The projects also support students in learning deeply about a topic through the act of documenting their work and presenting it to the world. Click here to learn more about the 18 exceptional Better World Projects.
