10th grade presents to 6th grade about empathy!
Ms Aisha’s 10th gave wonderful presentations to the 6th graders this week about the challenges that children face in the developing world and how we should develop empathy for all those undergoing extreme trials and hardships. They did an amazing job with both content and presentation and the 6th graders were thoroughly engaged. I am very proud of my former students and the young adults they are becoming. Special thanks to Ms. Aisha for sharing with us!
Jazakum Allahu khairan to 10th grade Honors English students for exceptional presentations, to the 6th-grade social studies students who were an attentive and respectful audience, and to their teacher, Ms. Julia, who provided this opportunity for our 10th graders.
This quarter, the 10th-graders read The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, an amazing memoir of Willaim Kamkwamba, a young boy from Malawi who recounts the suffering he endured from extreme famine and inability to attend school; yet he does not let it stop him from learning and assisting his family and community. After researching the suffering of children around the world, they prepared presentations for a younger audience to foster empathy and the desire to practice charity for the sake of Allah.
The 10th-graders skillfully presented through Zoom while the 6th-graders sent questions and comments through the chat. Alhumdulillah, it was a very beneficial experience for all.
