Event description

Description

Are you looking for an all in one school that also considers real-life learning and current events? A place where your community believes in concern for the earth, racial/gender inclusion and relationship skills as basic rights? This is open to students ages 9 to 12. If you're looking for that drill & kill, suck the life out of you learning style though, this may not be your spot. We believe children have a right to learning through challenge & exploration, failure & funk - that every moment is an opportunity to learn.

Join us on Wednesdays from 2p to 3pm for a collaborative civics course:

One of the best ways to prepare young people for their roles as citizens and leaders is to actually allow them a real chance to participate in authentic democratic activities—from elections to advocacy, from public debates to creation of new civic media. This two part Action Civics course empowers students with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to be “superstar citizens” and community leaders! Student’s will gain these skills through the "Issues to Action" process. Issues to Action as is a six-step process in which students take on a civics project to address problems in their schools or communities. This course provides a framework for engaging youth in that process. In the first semester we will cover:

#1 Examine Community

#2 Identify Issues

#3 Conduct Research.

In the second semester we will use our previous knowledge from semester one to dive into

#4 Analyze Power

#5 Develop Strategies

#6 Take Action.

The goals of this course are to:

  • Further develop student’s voice in concert with a variety of skills, including information literacy, persuasive written and oral communication skills, research skills, and collaborative learning.

  • Learn the six-step process of Issues to Action.

  • Support students in their roles as citizens and leaders by helping them develop & implement an

    Action Civics project in their community.

    Young people engaging in action civics:

  • SPEAK OUT about issues affecting them, their school, and community

  • ADVOCATE for change

  • COLLABORATE with others

  • RESEARCH an issue & set a goal

  • DEVELOP a plan to effect change
