My mission is to help educators help students help their communities by collaborating with individuals, groups, and institutions to develop strategies for implementing community-based learning activities into the curriculum.
Community-Based Learning (CBL)
CBL refers to a variety of instructional practices used to connect what is being taught in schools to students' surrounding communities.
Benefits of CBL include:
✓ helping students understand academic content in "real world" context
✓ increasing students' excitement about learning
✓ strengthening students' higher order thinking skills
✓ developing students' 21st Century and 3rd Millennium skills™
✓ improving students' retention of academic knowledge
✓ expanding students' college and career-readiness
✓ fostering stronger relationships between schools and their communities
✓ increasing the community’s investment in, understanding of, and support for the school
CBL is a viable solution to closing the opportunity gap that many marginalized students experience because it is a culturally responsive and relevant approach to education that allows students to use standards-based skills to better understand and improve their communities.
