Unfortunately, my school has not started on this journey and hence I am excited to be able to share my takeaways from this course with my colleagues and getting them fired up, hopefully. We have tried to partner with a local NGO but there wasn’t any investigation from the onset. I ‘forced’ a plan to partner with the NGO as I have been volunteering with them and had them come in to share with our students. The students were excited to participate but now that I have learned about these 5 stages, it makes more sense to have the students taking ownership of this from the very beginning by having them, together with their teachers, investigate the real needs of the community.
