Amazing Story of Courage

Just read this story and saw short documentary through Mental Floss. A great website in any case. It’s absolutely amazing the courage this 19 year old young woman has to compete in this year’s Olympic Games despite the cultural prejudices and dangers for her and her family. Wouldn’t it be powerful if students could come together and support people and causes like this one? This year I’m looking to spend a great deal of class time on project based collaborative learning with students and classrooms from around the world. I can only hope that my students are as inspired and strong and Mahbooba.
