Teaching Philanthropy in Independent Schools

Enjoy the work of your peers - Teach a course or unit written by Independent School educators. Through the Learning to Give courses and lessons for independent schools, you will find creative examples of teaching and learning that develop students’ 21st century competencies – collaboration, problem solving, global awareness, and analysis – while equipping students to give, serve, and take citizen action to better their world.

Teacher-created philanthropy education lessons magnify the impact of any academic content with themes of generosity, community, and civic and social responsibility. Perfect base for PBL, service-learning, and student-centered instruction. Lessons align to state standards, including Common Core State Standards, and some international standards.

Every day there are opportunities to discuss our role in civil society and decide whether and how to get involved in current events. At Learning to Give, we want to help students learn and practice taking action for the common good—yes, this too is philanthropy. This page provides tools and tips related to current events. Look here to involve your students' voice and action to make a difference.
