ONE WORKSHOP WONDER!
One workshop wonder! Chicago Public Schools 2nd Grade teacher Melitza Rodriguez took our Systems Thinking Schools 101 workshop in summer 2020 and it inspired a whole year of online teaching and learning. Melitza and her students studied the Chicago River, its ecosystems, animals, intersections with city life and even took two virtual field trips to explore the river. Outcomes? Her kids were engaged all year, launched a fundraiser, wrote poems about the river, and Melitza was honored as Educator of the Year by Friends of the Chicago River.
