Catch the Spirit! Lesson Plans [and Calendar], September 2000-August 2001.
Prudential Foundation, Newark, NJ.
This packet contains lesson plans with real-life service projects that students can do throughout the school year, from September 2000 to August 2001. The lesson plans in the packet provide teachers with flexibility to offer them to students as young as grade 5 and as old as grade 12. The lesson plans, although essentially social studies, service learning, or civics lessons, can be used to enhance other skills, such as research techniques, problem solving, creative writing, and personal development. Each lesson plan in the packet features a variety of class activities, individual assignments, a real class service project that will be determined and implemented by the students, and reflection activities. Keeping a student journal is a component of all 12-months' plans. Each lesson plan varies in time commitment; some require only one or two class periods, while others require as many as five class periods. The packet contains a calendar of "timely tips" and real-life service projects. Includes a list of resources. (BT)
