This interactive presentation demonstrates strategies for empowering students to go beyond band-aid solutions to important issues and look for long term sustainable solutions. Project based learning ideas will be provided. Participants will become knowledgeable of the Action Civics philosophy, approach and how it can help students to guide the direction of their education. The Project Soapbox activity is an example of the workshop will help illustrate how the Action Civics model of The Mikva Challenge supports student inquiry, critical thinking and communication skills.
The workshop will utilize multiple models of identify with respect to citizenship and civic engagement. Participants will examine three different models of citizenship and apply the models to their students. Participants will engage in the “ root cause “ activity from our Action Civics programs and reflect on application and implementation of this activity with their students. Participants will reflect on ways to incorporate Action Civics in their classrooms. Participants will gain ideas for project based learning opportunities in their classrooms and school communities.
The Six Steps to the Action Civics Classroom workshop is based upon the premise that effective and sustainable deeper learning occurs when students are involved in the decision making process throughout. Supporting student voice is at the heart of Mikva’s work. Session participants will gain an understanding of how Action Civics helps teachers provide the increased opportunities for deeper learning that result in sustainable post-secondary success.
