1. Community Projects


a. Introduction

As an eighth grader in the Middle Years Program, DAS students embark on a wonderful journey of learning and exploration through completing the mandatory Community Projects course.

• The Community Project is a graded subject which will be included in the final report card.
• A Community Project is an in-depth inquiry that focuses on community and service.
• The project aims to help students raise awareness, participate actively, research, inform others, create/innovate, change behavior, or advocate.
• The project consists of four main components: a community service, a process journal, a reflection paper, and an exhibition.
• Students will be working in small groups supervised by a mentor who will support them throughout the year.
• The students will have 2 periods each week and will complete the project by the end of the year.

The Community Project encourages students to:

• explore their right and responsibility to participate in service as action in the community.
• become aware of needs in various communities and address those needs through service learning.
• practice and strengthen their learning skills.
• connect classroom learning with personal experience.
• reflect on learning and share knowledge, views, and opinions with others.
