2018 CCS Service-Learning/Project Based Learning Workshop
In collaboration with Columbus City Schools, Partnerships Make A Difference will provide in-depth professional development and consulting services to support the development of high quality Service-Learning/Project Based Learning implementation by educators from interested Columbus City schools (secondary schools given first priority). This graduate course is supported by a Columbus City Schools grant from the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation.
2018 CCS Service-Learning/PBL Workshop Details
Service-learning is an instructional strategy that directly connects community service with the school curriculum, adding rigor, relevance, and relationships to the learning process and helping students actively address significant local/global needs. It is an especially engaging form of PBL—an instructional approach that enables students to “do the work of real people” by investigating important questions and solving authentic problems.
Partnerships Make A Difference consultants, Kathy Meyer and Ellen Erlanger, will conduct workshop sessions on June 26-27, 2018 (8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., coffee at 8:00 a.m.) and August 7 (8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., coffee at 8:00 a.m.). Additional after-school “support” sessions will be be held during the 2018-2019 school year on a voluntary basis. All sessions will be held at The Graf Center, 2020 Builders Place, Columbus, OH, 43204. Additionally, all participants will be invited to attend the “Growing Together” Service-Learning Network’s “Critical Issues Summit” (TBD September or October 2018) and the Network’s “Changemakers” Leadership Summit (TBD May 2019). Both Summits will be held 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at Mid-Ohio Foodbank. Participants in the summer workshop are eligible for CEUs, or teachers may earn Ashland University graduate credit at their own expense.

To Do List
"My students are learning so much about themselves, their future professional paths, and the people they will serve. They are growing both academically and personally. Through this (service-learning) project we are able to reach into all areas of the curriculum, and it just keeps expanding every day.” -- Carla Toles-Anthony, Teacher, Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center
