Outliers: The Story of Success Documentary Community Service Project
Product Description
This project is a summative assessment to be given after reading the novel Outliers: The Story of Success. Students will create a documentary that captures their group (of 4) changing the world for the better. Students must first identify a problem they see in their community. Secondly, they must come up with a plausible solution. This solution will require research, planning, and implementation. Their solutions may include creating a philanthropy event. If this is the case, students will have to decide:
• where the money will go
• whom they will invite to the event
• where and when it will be held
• whom must they ask for permission/clearance for the event
• how much money they will need to have prior to the event
• whether the event will actually raise more money than it initially cost to conduct
• whom they will contact for help
• how to network
All of these skills are crucially for planning any revenue-building event. Planning, researching, networking, and documenting are crucial skills for the professional world. Students will also learn crucial problem-solving and troubleshooting skills. I consistently emphasize perseverance over perfection. Ultimately, the grade is for their documentary, not their service project. The documentary should be informative to raise awareness for their cause (this requires clear research as well).
