Classroom Projects

The Office of High School Development has developed new guidelines for the Service Learning Initiative. The new guidelines are designed to encourage teachers to integrate service projects with classroom curriculum. One of the ways that OHSD is supporting this effort is to recruit community organizations to work directly with teachers on service projects that are integrated with classroom curriculum. If you click on classroom projects, you can find a listing of agencies that are prepared to work with a teacher on a project. Browse through the organizations and, hopefully, you will find the organization that is a good fit for you, your students, and your classroom goals.

While some of the listed organizations have specific projects previously designed for student participation, others are more flexible and can work with you to develop a project that meets the goals of the organization and your classroom. Representatives from community organizations can serve as guest speakers, host a project, or work with your class to design and implement a project.
