GET TO KNOW THE 6 THEMES OF WHAP GROUP ASSIGNMENT 1. I will assign each group one of the 6 themes. The person with the black marker will write the theme at the top of the paper. Other members choose different colored markers and write your name (small) at the bottom of the page. Introduce yourself to the group as you complete #1.

2. First, talk about the theme and what it means. Talk about examples of it in real life (now or in the past). Examples can be global or local (community, school, home). NO USING ELECTRONIC DEVICES! Talk and help each other. 3. Once you have decided on examples (one for each member), have the member write it on the paper.

Examples must be SPECIFIC! For example, ENV=When the Cuyahoga River caught fire cuz of water pollution GOV=GHS principal and asst. principals Use bulleted phrases or words 4. Each group will show their examples to the class and explain why they fit the theme. Decide who will talk: everyone does their own?
