Experiential Activity: Action Plan and Goal Setting (30mins+)

Students will develop an action plan to guide the implementation of their community project. Students will
practice their collaboration and self agency skills in this lesson.

Students should first identify project goals/outcomes. They can then break these down into actionable
tasks. Students should then delegate tasks amongst themselves and set deadlines. Below is a sample

Some important tasks to include are:

  1. Finding resources
  2. Collecting media and footage of the project in action
  3. Interviewing people and collecting reviews

Teachers should devise a planning framework that fits the needs of the community project for students to
fill out. The action plan can be laid out and visualized in large format on one of the classroom walls as a
timeline! Include the Show What You know Module at the end of the course.

Debrief and Reflection (10 mins)

  1. What? What is your plan? Review it and everyone’s individual and group responsibility..
  2. So What? Why is planning important to making your project work? What are some of the considerations and limitations in planning? What can make the plan fail or succeed? How do individuals need to adjust their styles to collaborate and execute the plan?
  3. Now what? How will your plan be modified and adjusted to the project needs?.
