New Assignment. A Quest!

I've created a variety of PDF essays that are intended to help people learn ways to support the growth of volunteer-based tutoring, mentoring and learning programs in high poverty neighborhoods. While these can be read on line, I've also presented them to students and volunteers. Going through this information using the PDF can be quite boring. So I've been looking for new ways to introduce these concepts. This is an animation I made to introduce this concept. View on YouTube

Here are a couple of other animations introducing students to a web quest.

Making a map, class assignment, animation.

Doing a web quest.

Look at work interns have done in the past to guide people through this information. As new projects are created we will add them to our web sites, and they become tools students can use to bring more people together in their own neighborhoods to do the work of building and sustaining mentor-rich non-school programs. Try it!
