Implement the C3 Framework for Social Studies
TAKING INFORMED ACTION
Embracing Service-Learning and Civic Engagement to Solve Real-World Problems
By Greg Timmons. Utilizing the C3 Framework for Social Studies, this service-learning instructional unit draws students into civic engagement to solve real-world problems. Teaching suggestions, activities, and worksheets guide students through the process of creating and executing service-learning projects. These comprehensive tools require students to analyze issues found in the world around them, build plans to actively address those issues, develop proposals to promote their plans, design procedures for implementation, and then execute the service-learning project, evaluate its effectiveness, and publicize the results. The unit typically runs for 7–11 class periods but may be shortened or lengthened based on need. Grades 7–12. Suggested resources. 8½" x 11". Interact. 58 pages. ©2015.
