The Lesson
Initiation:
Part I -Ask students to imagine their friend wrote a letter to them asking for money. Ask students to
consider what the letter would have to include to get them to say yes to the request.
-Show grant proposal video (https://youtu.be/teiFh-XPnl0) and ask what the creators might be
wanting to accomplish. Connect the discussion about grant writing to the project students have
been working on. Emphasize the necessity of being able to present a good proposal for an idea.
Ask students if they would be able to write a proposal for their idea in order to try and get
funding.
Part II
-Tell students that many of their ideas require funding and that in order to receive funding they
must be able to write an effective proposal.
-Say, Today you will need to create a proposal draft for your project idea. I want you to imagine
you are writing to receive grant money to accomplish your plan. What will our proposal need to
include in order to be effective?
Lesson Development:
Directions: You will work in your groups of three to write a draft of a proposal. Each of you will
work on one portion of the proposal. One of you will work on the cover letter, another on the
statement of need and another on the statement of objectives.
Step 1:(10mins)Have students go to the site below to research how to write grant proposals.

Step 2: (5 mins)Then post the video below about successful grant proposals on the shared class
padlet page for students to watch and discuss with their group.

Step 3:(3mins)Give students a rubric and allow students to choose the portion of the proposal
they want to write.
Step 4: (30 mins)Students work in their Padlet.com account and in Google Docs creating a draft
and synthesizing their research.
Closure:
