Living on One

“Living on One” is a documentary that focuses on the realization of extreme poverty and the challenges of living on $1 a day.  This full-day workshop will break the film down into 8 episodes and pair these segments with lessons that can be presented to middle and high school students.  During the workshop, we will demonstrate lessons highlighting topics such as scarcity, human capital, extreme budgeting, and entrepreneurship.  The film presents an ideal opportunity for project-based learning and will conclude with multiple ways to challenge your middle and high school students.
