Transcript of BTC DETROIT
DETROIT FUTURE MEDIA
The theme of my 5th grade ELA/SS
classroom is: "Be the Change." The year
is divided up into three parts.
1. BE THE CHANGE IN YOUR OWN LIFE
2. BE THE CHANGE IN SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE
3. BE THE CHANGE IN THE CITY OF DETROIT
The goal of the theme was to empower the students to act as "ChangeMakers."
Globalization is shrinking the world and reading, writing, and arithmetic are no longer going to
cut it. In order to effectively engage in the 21st century are students are going to need
more than "beating" the state tests. Our students must be global citizens. We live in
competitive times. Completing school is not going to be enough for our students to truly
thrive. They must be critical thinkers. Most importantly, students--of all ages--must understand how to use their voice and make an everlasting impact
on the world around them.

So how does DFM play in?
The theme of our class is “Be the Change” and we work to embody the traits of a “ChangeMaker”. In our self-created definition, this is “a solution based person that inspires others through positive change.”
1. Be the Change in your own life
2. Be the Change in someone else's life
3. Be the Change in the city of Detroit*
ChangeMakers presenting a
Case for Action to Mayor Bing
on December 2, 2011.
The year is divided into three parts:
[Desired] End Goal? Students who don't
just have the ability to act... but truly believe
they can. Students who understand how to
use their voice and how to make an everlasting
impact on the world around them.
*Beautifying an abandoned park next to our school.
TIME FOR DOTMOCRACY!
After a second graphic
dotmocracy we had our winner!
Using the ChangeMaker trait
of synergy I created a flyer
for the big clean up using the student
designed [and approved] logo.
Back to the park...
LOGOS TURNED INTO SHIRTS
ChangeMakers felt stylish and proud as they beautified Forest Park.
On Tuesday June 5th, we were joined by 8th graders
from Hillel Day School for an afternoon of cleaning up, bonding... and of course some play.

After a successful indiegogo campaign they were ready!
