Product Description

This kit will help you prepare for and lead successful GET IT! and Chores for Change programs. It shares the quick and easy steps of implementing the GET IT! and Chores for Change programs along with ideas and resources to keep your kids motivated to reach their goal. GET IT!®: Global Education To Improve Tomorrow is a curriculum-based global education and service-learning program that teaches students and teachers about sustainable solutions to world hunger and poverty. GET IT! Goals and Objectives include teaching students and teachers about sustainable solutions toward ending poverty around the world, encouraging students and teachers as consumers to become aware of everyday actions that affect both the global environment and people around the world, teaching students to conduct research, critically evaluate their findings and assess the impact of consumer choices in the context of multinational economic interdependence, as well as enable and encourage students to take actions to support sustainable solutions to poverty. The GET IT! curriculum engages students as investigative journalists to research, write about, and act on issues surrounding consumer choices and international trade. Students learn how to ask questions, think critically, and communicate what they learn. By writing and circulating stories based on their research, students get hands-on experience in spreading awareness about consumer issues. The program goes hand-in-hand with Chores for Change, a service-learning program that teaches students about hunger and encourages them to help fight it.
