My name is Alyssa Lobaugh and I am a sophomore Education major here at Hiram College. I have had so much fun in class making my lesson and prepping for the trip. I am so excited to travel to the Dominican Republic this summer because I have never been out of the country and feel I will make a huge impact on the children in the Dominican Republic. I am eager to visit the homework rooms and meet new people. I am most excited to teach my lesson on Children’s Rights.
My goal for this lesson is to teach children their rights, have them be able to identify their rights, exercise their rights, let them know everyone has these rights and that nobody can take their rights away from them. The way we are teaching this lesson is through reading stories to the children about rights and coloring pages that coincide with the story book. At the end of the three stories we are planning on reading, the children will have one final coloring page to draw and color their favorite right and hopefully they will take this lesson to heart and remember it long term and exercise their rights daily.
I am really looking forward to this trip and feel I will make an impact on many children. It is going to be an experience of a life time and I am so grateful for this opportunity.
