Due: May 19

Problem

For the rest of the semester you will be working in your group on a project to help increase access to education. There are three general approaches you can take when choosing what to do:

Everything for the service learning project from this point on should be turned in via a folder in Google Drive that is shared with Mr. Miller and all group members.

Step 1: Create Your Group Goal(s)

As you develop your group goals, ask the following questions to ensure the goals are clear and effective:

You need to develop at least one goal, and each goal should have an action plan.

Example Goals

Step 2: Measure Your Goals

Establish measurements for each of your goals that will determine if you have successfully completed each goal. Measurements should be based on data, which can be in one of two forms:

These measures can be modified as you complete your project. You may find later in the project that there is a better source of data than the one you originally envisioned.

Step 3: Identify Resources

Begin to identify what resources you will need to execute your action plan. You may also want to find people, businesses, organizations, education experts, media outlets, and popular people on social media who can serve as supporters of your project and help you reach your goals. Some of the resources you may need can include, but are not limited to the following:

Step 4: Timeline

You need to come up with a timeline in order to finish the project by the deadline listed at the top of this page. If you'd like, you can use this document for your goals, action plan, responsibilities, and timeline.

Step 5: Do It!

Complete your action plan and record your progress along the way to share at the end of the project. Feel free to share images/video with Mr. Miller if you want him to post anything on social media. A note will be placed on your transcript if you successfully complete this project and it will be a great thing to use on college and scholarship applications.
