In an effort to help my students recognize the news media tendency toward shock and fear reporting, I have introduced a project to help students look for the good in society. They have created presentations on local, state, national and global incidents of kindness. Next they created a blog post on their favorite example of people doing good things for society. Please respond to them if you can! Thank you! Alison
