1) Participants are encouraged to watch "Girl Rising" (or excerpted chapters at: Nepal Chapter http://youtu.be/Hk2Q7WLzn0s and Peru Chapter http://youtu.be/7P6nL7PXILw if the full DVD is not available) and, then have their students share their reflections after watching it by posting to the Girl Rising forum on iEARN.
[NOTE - Through a partnership with GCE-US (Global Campaign for Education - US), members of iEARN can contact the project facilitators to receive a copy of the movie DVD for free.
2) Students can also read the book "I am Malala" and "Girl Rising: Changing the World One Girl at a Time" and discuss the personal struggles to receive an education.
3) As part of their discussions with other classes, students are encouraged to share ideas about what they can do to ensure that all girls and boys in the world have the right to a quality education. Discussion questions and suggestions for action steps are in the "About/Resources" section of this project.
4) Where possible, participants can arrange Skype video conferences and share their own learning and learn with each other.
