Activity Instruction:
The Fanoghe March will take place on September 2nd, 2019.  Members of the community will gather at Adelup (Governors’ complex) at 8am and march to the District Court, starting at 9am, and back.   Student can make and display posters, take and post pictures/video or just observe. 

Students have several options as to how this participation would be considered service learning.  Students may create a letter to the editor, poetry, an edited video, photo slide or multi-media presentation to be delivered to students who were not able to attend.  Please consult with your individual teachers to explore possible forms of sharing or service for this activity. 

 

Reflection Instruction:
Students should focus on the perceived impacts in which the march may have generated.

In order to earn service learning hours, a reflection will need to be turned in to a teacher for input into Power School. The reflection should address: What did you do? What did you learn? In what way was this service to your community?
