One 60-Minute Class Period
The Learner will:
- use skills and concepts developed in this unit to analyze a specific situation that might warrant the intervention of volunteers or volunteer organizations.
Students will be active participants in a round table discussion about a local issue.
Tell the class the they should keep in mind the question, "Whose job should it be and why?"
- Each cooperative group will select one individual to participate in a "round table discussion"
The group discussion will be based upon a question posed on a specific topic. A sample question could be:
"Which community needs are the responsibility of government, and which should be handled by local non-profit, philanthropic organizations?"
- The students in the discussion will demonstrate their understanding of philanthropy, volunteerism, and service to others through their discussions.
- Students not on the Discussion Panel will have Fishbowl Evaluation Forms (Attachments One and Two) to fill out to help evaluate each student and give them an opportunity to demonstrate their own understanding of the topic discussed.
