This can be a very powerful
step where students apply new knowledge to life to help solve problems.
This is something that should be done as a group that takes them outside
of just their personal lives, making an impact in their community or in
the workplace. Some project ideas follow.
Project Activity #1: Publishing
From the information
gained in research, students identify who would value form knowing more
about the topic. After determining who the audience is and how the publication
will be distributed, the publication is developed. (Students may decide
to rewrite currently existing publications)
Project Activity #2: Video
Students may decide to make a video to present their new information to
others. This can take form in a number of ways: a news broadcast, a variety
show, or interviews. Some videos could even make it to public access channels.
Project Activity #3: Form
Students may decide to form a club. these clubs could serve as support
groups where members are able to share their progress and get referrals
and help from one another. Possible clubs include: child care coops, job
clubs, work-exchange clubs, and substance abuse support groups (would
most likely need a professional counselor).
Project Activity #4: Presentations
may decide to make presentations to other groups. These groups could be
located in the school or out in the community.
Project Activity #5: Writing
might write articles for their local or school newspapers. They could
coordinate an effort to write to decision makers.
Project Activity #6: Panel
arrange a panel discussion on the topic for the school or community.
