Learning Contemporary Problems through Community Involvement. A Senior Social Studies Elective.
Eagan, Julianne; Freitas, Kevin
A critical exploration of the meaning and function of community is the focus of this curriculum unit. It is proposed that students develop projects that are designed to contribute to a community in which they are involved, positing that the leadership and networking skills these students develop over the course of the semester provide them with confidence and direction for the adult world they are about to enter. The unit presents a course overview, student objectives, methodology and assessment materials, a section on student projects and whole class activities, final student presentations, a section on course content, notes for the teacher on how to teach the course, and a contemporary problems project list.
