Community Opportunities: Volunteer and Leisure Education. A Concept Paper.
This document suggests a new 1-semester, 1-period secondary education course called "Community Opportunities: Volunteer and Leisure Education" to be located in the social studies department and incorporating proven practices from the vocational education department. The document provides the student objectives, instructional methods to be used, a rationale for the course, a schematic of main courses and extracurricular options, tasks to be undertaken for a 3- to 6-year model project, and 18 print and nonprint references. Among the objectives are that students will identify reasons for volunteering, make a volunteer service plan, explore opportunities in different community volunteer service agencies, assess their leisure interests, identify a new or dormant leisure interest, and write a plan for greater involvement in that leisure interest. Homework assignments could be community volunteer service. (CML)
