MINDFRAME Grand Challenge: What is the American Dream and who defines it? A union is useless if people are absent, and as a part of the American Republic, the MINDFRAME TEAM is counting on you to preserve, nurture, redefine, and explore the concept of the American Dream. To rediscover this notion, take as much risk as possible to design and create your innovative answer and present your solution during the competition. Remember real ingenuity is a product of risk.
Driving Question: How can we keep the American Dream alive?
Challenge Context: We have recently discovered a new island off the coast of Georgia! Our governor wants to begin the process of creating a new city there. So, he has tasked you with thinking about the history of Georgia, Georgia economics, Georgia government and Georgia citizenry and building on this information to propose an ideal place! Each of the tasks below will allow you to explore one aspect to design and create a new place to live in Georgia. This context applies to all divisions and all challenges.
You can write the future, so to complete this challenge, your team will need to consider your school environment and the people in it while drawing on the knowledge of what you know about America and her history.
Your team will design, create and perform a spoken word piece illustrating the skills you and your peers need as future leaders before transitioning to middle and high school.
Notes to the Coach
This research and performing opportunity allows students to investigate and discover someone who may not be as renowned but none-the-less important to our American identity. Students get to design and create and perform a mosaic commentary through research, collaboration, and trial and error.
