Volunteering as Good Work
This unit teaches the students the concept of volunteerism by looking at the many different jobs involved in running the school. A comparison is made between jobs that are paid and those that are unpaid. The students will interview volunteers to learn about the motivation and rewards of volunteering. Each student decides how to be a volunteer in school, at home or in the community. This unit may be coordinated with a Learning to Give music unit for a Service learning project.
