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 across all divisions and is applicable to all challenges.
Creativity manifests when we use limited resources to accomplish any task, and during Shakespeare’s time period, words became props to impact social reform.
Your team will reflect on history and consider the present-day to design a spoken word piece that defines how a historical figure has redefined society (choosing anyone) from the inception of America.
Your spoken word art will reflect how one human, when moving towards their dream, can continue to inspire future generations including you.
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 perform a mosaic commentary through research, collaboration, and trial and error.
