Are you interested in and inspired by community action projects but you're not sure how to approach it in a way where students can work independently smoothly and seamlessly? Do you want community action projects but do not have the time to develop guiding materials for your students? This tool kit is your golden ticket!
This community action project tool kit for self directed learners guides students through student-led project-based learning, service-learning, and problem-based learning all in one with little prep and no planning or creating on your part.
A community action project asks students to deeply explore one issue or problem in the community (locally, nationally, or globally), a problem that they identify through research, questioning, and observation. Students brainstorm solutions to the issue or problem, develop a plan of action, and act! Their goal is to make a positive, long-term impact on the community. This product includes all of the guiding materials necessary to accomplish such an important learning experience.
Community action projects could easily be aligned to standards and incorporated into a specific subject, or they could be the entire course. Projects should be expected to take anywhere from 4-6 weeks. The range depends on how much classroom time you dedicate to the projects, how many projects students have going on at one time, which brainstorming activities you implement, skill level, age level, etc.
This resource is Google Apps™ compatible. It includes a printable AND digital version. The digital version can be assigned to students via Google Classroom™ where students can add and share their content with you. No printing isnecessary.
Note: The PDF is NOT editable. The digital version of this resource is more flexible.
