Pembroke Pines (K-12) Campus - International Baccalaureate
“Break-Away “ is a student led initiative to address the division in today’s society by providing a safe place to talk about relevant events in hopes of “breaking away” from the barriers that surround students and in return creating a more tolerant and inclusive community. The topics discussed in the Break-Away sessions derive from the monthly “Global Citizen’s Project” lesson and corresponding inquiry question. The moderators are Model UN members and all participants are nominated by their Individual and Societies teacher.
All aspects of “Break-Away” are done by students: questions, answers, recording, editing, creating of the introduction, logo, motto, and music selection.
