2010 Principal Winner
School: Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy
Project: Project Pen Pal
Ms. Morgan initiated a Pen Pal program that connects students from Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy with female students from two African countries (Ethiopia and South Africa). With a focus on history, current issues, customs and cultural practices, students create multi-media presentations using the latest technology (including podcasts, videoconferences, email and Facebook) to document their interactions and discussions. The project aims to provide students with a rich, relevant experience that will increase their literacy skills and deepen their understanding of African culture.
