Make That Change
Students define philanthropy and research a philanthropist of their choice. They gain inspiration from songs about taking action and investigate their own ability to make a difference through sharing time, talent, or treasure for the common good.
Learners will examine and demonstrate knowledge of philanthropy and its impact on society. Learners will explore how they have they engaged in philanthropy and become aware of several new opportunities to perform philanthropic service.
The learners will conduct an in-depth biographical investigation of a philanthropist and evaluate the significance of his/her contribution to the common good.
After designing their own philanthropic projects, students will select one service project to implement. Learners will collaboratively select and design a service plan for implementation and assess their designed service plan using a learner designed rubric and project reflection.
