Here is the link to our Service Learning Action Plan.
What we planned to do during our initial research and planning stages was to schedule out each session of our service so that we’d have an idea about the progress and activities we did with 4PM each week. We split up each week by having a different group of people organising the activities for that session and then we alternate.
Each session we have tried to slowly build the kids’ trust with us as well as their confidence. We initially planned activities so that we could get to know the kids and they could get used to being with us then we later transitioned to more activities based around building their confidence levels. We are continuing to plan our sessions around our goal which is to create a performance based on their topic of study, conservation, in order to increase their confidence and performance skills.
So far it has been a successful way to document our progress and keep record of what we have done. It’s also been helpful to us all because having all of the information on a central doc is convenient when planning for future sessions or reflecting on past ones.
