What is happening between kindergarten and third grade that causes so many students to lose interest in reading? I decided to do something about it, and I started writing ...

Fifth Grade ELA Researches Ethics in Business:
Fifth grade ELA students are researching large companies’ business practices for a project based on human rights and business ethics.
The assignment developed after students showed interest in taking on a research project while learning about human rights activism. Fifth grade ELA instructor Alexandra Ackerman worked together with elementary school librarian Beth McCheyne to structure the project in a way that would be manageable for fifth grade students.
“I feel strongly that a lack of human rights is one of the world's biggest problems right now,” said Sylvia Brock, a student in the class. “I thought it would be great for us to research these things and do what we could to fix things that scream in the face of human rights."
