Heading into Superbowl Sunday, you might not know, but the New England Patriots have always promoted Volunteerism and Community Outreach. One of their initiatives is called Celebrate Volunteerism; which is an initiative they have to become involved in the community and give back.
In many of our vertical curriculum days in district we have been crafting our vision of the graduate. Some of the characteristics that we have said that we would like to see in our graduates of the future are that they can empathize with others and are civic and service-oriented.
Questions to Think About:
How can we provide students with opportunities to practice citizenship, service, and character development? How are we connecting our learning with current events? How can we promote service learning in our classes?
Take one lesson that you will be doing in the next few weeks and look for a way you can add in a connection to service, current events, or a way to engage students in civic discourse and empathy.
