Lesson Plan: Teaching the Lesson: Activity 5

Activity 5: Presentations to the community

This activity will clearly involve some advance work. In Anoka, the 23-year-old mayor is a former student of Bill Mittlefehldt’s and a firm believer in service learning. Not only has the mayor scheduled a special session of the City Council to hear students’ presentations, Bill Mittlefehldt has arranged for the presentations to be cablecast to the whole community, organized press coverage of the event, and invited community dignitaries to the proceedings. Bill Mittlefehldt serves as the moderator of the forum, introducing the goal of the activity and inviting the audience to participate in the assessment of the presentations using the Assessment Rubric.
