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 ? 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 . Service PBL is a powerful learning and teaching tool.

    Thank you! Amy

CODEL as policy for a cohesive California

“Graduate-level education programs prepare professionals and researchers to work in or study one (versus all) of the sectors. Often, education policy and research analysts earn degrees in fields other than education, such as public administration or political science. In any of these programs, there is rarely an overview course or experience that gives budding education policy analysts and researchers an overview of the P-20 system,” writes Jennifer A. Rippner in her 2016 The American Education Policy Landscape (pg. 2). She describes the piecemeal nature of American education and how its lack of cohesive structure affects American academic competitiveness. Rippner describes the educational landscape, but also a problem that has prompted policy-writing in California A 2005 California Senate Bill 724, penned by Jack Scott, allowed the California State University (CSU) system to create a handful of new doctorate programs to address stated need, including an Education Doctorate in Ed
