How it Works

Using short and compelling narrations of global good news, Good News Good
Planet Schools communicates how there is so much good happening in the world.
It inspires kids to identify issues that matter to them and see themselves as the
problem-solvers who are a powerful part of the solutions needed in their world.

Sample Stories

Within the provided curriculum, teachers have a wide selection of activities for
sixth to twelfth grade Language Arts and Social Studies.

The course begins with a pre-assessment questionnaire to determine the students’
awareness of issues in their community and around the world.

The students listen to 2-minute audio stories of good news from 4 categories;
Animals, Earth, Inventions and People. There are 80 stories to choose from.

PDF worksheets guide teachers to choose objectives that work best for their
students for class discussions, reports and projects on the stories.

The final objective is the design and presentation of a “Service-Learning Project”
created by the kids. This can be one project done by the whole class, or numerous
projects done by multiple groups of kids.

The course finishes with a post-assessment questionnaire to determine how the
students’ knowledge of global issues has changed.

*Time commitment is anywhere from three weeks to a full semester.

*The curriculum is designed to fit as a part of the teachers’ course work and not in
addition to it. We will work with you to align the program to your state’s already
existing learning standards.

*Students and teachers love this revolutionary program!
