Change the World

You can check out last year's Change the World video.

Thank you Tia McNaughton, Kyle Franck, and John Gearheart!

Thank you Daniel Holmes!

But I'm also working on students starting their projects this year and still looking for a few more mentors. Anyone an expert on homeless in the Eel River Valley, perhaps someone from River Life Foundation? I'm also looking for someone who knows about translation volunteering, someone who specializes in health care for the Spanish-speaking community, and someone wanting to take on a benefit concert for music education for our area schools.


  1. Amy,

    I'm a secondary English teacher in GA with dreams of accomplishing this in my English classes. (I have a bookmarks folder called Change The World 101). Is there somewhere i can go to see a more complete description of your implementation for these long term projects? (How do you help students find a project? How do you structure classtime dedicated to it? How do you grade?)

  2. Noah,

    First, did you send the edutopia article http://www.edutopia.org/blog/service-pbl-common-core-literacy-amy-conley ? That discusses more about Common Core literacy standard alignment.

    I made all of the documents I use public on Google so that other teachers can modify for their purposes https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B3th25qdwdXpZTFMY3NYQ0NCUzg&usp=sharing . Service PBL is a powerful learning and teaching tool.

    Thank you! Amy
