Teaching for Impact: Facilitating the MyImpact Challenge Curriculum

This will be a one-day symposium-style program, comprised of workshop-based sessions.  It will rely on participant engagement and involvement. It is best suited for teachers and youth leaders who work with students on civics projects, High School Government, Civics, U.S. History, English Language Arts and Social Studies, and is appropriate for community impact clubs.

Description

This one-day program introduces teachers and youth leaders to the newly enhanced MyImpact Challenge curriculum, fully preparing participants to be able to facilitate it in their own classes, clubs, and associations.  MyImpact Challenge, a five-unit curriculum culminating in a community-impact project, teaches middle and high school students how aspects of society such as entrepreneurship, philanthropy, and the policy process can activate citizenship and have positive and substantial effects on communities. The program will explore ways facilitators can guide students through an interactive digital curriculum that supports student voice and agency, guiding them toward developing their own projects, at their own pace, or with a teacher or youth leader’s support.  MyImpact Challenge has a flexible design that enables it to adapt to a range of classrooms. These include the semester-long service-learning courses that are offered in many high schools, and is also a natural fit for civic-minded youth programs
