|Applying learning: Youth projects|
Page 1 of 2
This workshop is divided into two sessions, each approximately an hour long. Plan to take a break after "Understand the EHL materials" before moving on to Session 2, "Experience the classroom."
Step 1: Workshop objectives
The teaching methods you will learn in this workshop is "Gathering stories and news." You will explore this teaching method with the help of Closing exploration: Where do we go from here?This exploration raises these questions: "How can you promote human dignity?" "What can you do to make a difference?" "How can you develop awareness in others?” The workshop is designed to raise the same questions for teachers. The aim is to familiarize yourself with a variety of approaches and ideas for helping students to plan and carry out projects that give them an opportunity to apply what they are being taught.
You may decide to do the projects at the very end of the programme, after all the other explorations have been completed. Or you might begin earlier, perhaps after Module 1, so that students can develop their projects as they learn. Or you might introduce the projects after certain explorations, such as 3C, 2B or 4A. In each case, you will be using the 'Extension activities' to generate ideas for projects.
Take a look at the following workshop objectives:
Overview: What goes on in this workshop?
In this online workshop, you will do Closing Exploration: Where do we go from here? You will explore different kinds of research and community projects that your students might take on.
You will also view a slide presentation on the teaching method used in this exploration: "Gathering stories and news."
You will need to keep an EHL journal to record your reflections. You may use your own paper journal or download our journal template and type in your journal entry.
Step 2: Understand the EHL materials (60 minutes)
Read and clarify
Use the EHL journal template for note-taking as you view the slide presentations.
Do the exploration
This workshop is different from the others in that you will not be working directly with the material for students. Instead, you will be exploring possible ways to help students apply what they have learned about protecting human dignity by planning and carrying out projects in the community.
Do the closing exploration. If you are doing this workshop in a group, selected teachers should conduct the exploration, using the sections in the exploration in this order: "Possible ideas for projects," "Questions for assessing a project's potential," 'Planning,' 'Carrying out' and "Reflecting on the project" and "Preparing to work in the community."
If you are doing this workshop on your own, invite a few friends or family members to discuss the planning of the projects and their execution.
EHL Journal reflection
After doing the exploration, look through the 'Extension activities' at the end of each exploration and select a few for consideration. Record your choices in your journal and your reasons for picking them.
Take a break and continue with Session 2 later.
