Community-Based Learning (CBL) is a concept that, in it’s basic form, connects class curriculum to community needs. Teachers are constantly stretched thin with a myriad of competing requirements that pull their attention away from engaging in meaningful education. We want to make it easy for teachers to engage their students while simultaneous giving them more time to complete all of their requirements.
The Classroom Workshop Program is a pilot program with AVID teachers at Franklin High School (FHS) to determine the feasibility of partnering yearly through the addition of a CBL curriculum. AVID stands for Advancement Via Independent Determination and is a national education organization that prepares students for college, careers, and life through student-centered curriculum. Students in every 9th and 10th grade AVID classes will engage in a monthly workshop throughout the entirety of the 2019-20 school at FHS.
In addition, FHS AVID teachers are requiring their students to volunteer 10 hours throughout the 2019-20 school year. We have planned semesterly volunteer opportunity off-site specifically for all AVID students and family members to supplement the workshops. The High School Club at FHS will also be invited in to promote the monthly volunteer events that occur on campus.
