Help the Homeless


We Observe Homeless People Living Amongst Us Daily. While commuting to work, a man and his dog stands on a busy corner with a sign for help. We see a city of tents with shopping carts in public parks. And vagrants sitting on sidewalks downtown, or standing idle outside a cafe. This awareness activity provides writing prompts that present questions for students to ponder their own perspective. Classmates will consider the problem and possible solutions, and how they might help. Teachers can launch further discussions on morality, poverty, justice, causes, prevention, solutions, and other social issues stemming from this widespread dilemma. The is a proactive, critical thinking assignment to engage your class!
