Project-based learning Unit: World Monuments Watch
This project-based learning unit is one of a series developed by World Monuments Fund and World Savvy, an education organization dedicated to engaging youth in community and world affairs. By combining WMF’s knowledge and experience in the heritage field with World Savvy’s education mission and network, this series seeks to prepare the next generation of leaders to learn, work, and thrive as responsible global citizens. The World Monuments Watch unit is designed for students in grades 6-12 and promotes the connection between historic preservation and sustainability. The unit provides a basis from which students can explore the importance of preserving significant places in their own lives and communities, and examine how advocacy serves as a vital tool in defining and preserving cultural heritage.
