Critical Hope - "Open Sentences" activity
This activity is part of a larger environmental education workshop package called Critical Hope; An Approach to Environmental Education which includes almost 30 group or classroom activities.
This stand-alone activity has students working cooperatively in pairs completing sentences begun by the teacher. These sentences provide a “swift and easy way for people to voice their inner responses to the condition of our world.” Sentences such as:
“I think the condition of our society is becoming … “
“What concerns me most about the world today is … “
“Ways that I avoid these feelings are … “
This activity can be used in conjunction with the “I Don’t Care” activity referenced here.
