The learner will:
Students will hold a town meeting to decide on an Academic Service-Learning project and make a detailed plan for its execution.
The planning and outcome of the academic service project will serve as the unit assessment. A unit-wide vocabulary crossword puzzle may be designed by students as an optional evaluation.
This unit is to be taught at the beginning of the civics course. With the primary focus of civics being citizens and their government, the academic service learning at the end of lesson five is necessary in connecting the lesson concepts. I did not get specific on the academic service-learning project because I feel the project works best when it is student-initiated using the town meeting format.
