  6. PROJECT - "Chinese Wisdom for the Modern World"
    1. Think about how people treat each other in the world in which we live
    2. Look through the lessons we have learned from the Eastern philosophers we have already studied (Confucius, Laozi, and Buddha)
    3. What wisdom have they shared that could apply to our lives today? The way we treat each other at school? The way we treat our family members? The way we treat each other on social media?
    4. Identify ONE QUOTE that will be the central theme for your project (only one quote per group, so have some back-ups just in case). We will pick tomorrow.
    5. Identify up to TWO OTHER PEOPLE with whom to work on the project
    6. You will then choose one of THREE WAYS to present your theme:
      1. Create a Google Slides slideshow connecting your quote with three ways we can make our real world lives better. You present this to the class. Worth 25 points.
      2. Create a PSA video with your group to share your quote and three ways we can connect that quote to making our real world lives better. You present this to the class AND if it's a good enough video, we'll share it on Sierra Vista Life. Worth 50 points.
      3. Create a campaign connecting your quote with three ways we can make our real world lives better. Pick a quote and live it, share it, do it. Create a hashtag. Make signs/buttons/pins. Create signs to put up in teacher's classrooms. Go to the mall and share with the community. Go feed the homeless. Take care of shelter animals. DO something. Document your project in photos/video and share with the class and/or Mr. Ippolito by the end of the quarter. Worth 100 points.
