For example, at Whittier Elementary, the principal was working toward involving all teachers in at least two PBL units per year. In the Edison Profile in Goal 4, the principal wanted to launch a single, powerful pilot unit involving multiple grade levels for a number of weeks. In other instances, the whole school may be involved in a large-scale PBL project such as building a space shuttle simulation or solving a community problem. Principals and schools benefit from becoming involved in the development of units.
Communities need children who can participate in local and state government. However, this reconnection is also about changing the relationship between schooling and policy. Today, schools often perceive the role of government in education as adversarial, and many policymakers have lost faith in schools as a viable public institution. Service learning is an opportunity for schools to involve local community members, business partners, and policymakers in discussions about the needs of the community and in celebration of children’s services to the community.
Also, working with experts, policymakers, and community members as mentors, role models, and colearners demonstrates to students that their work and education are valued by significant people and that it is well-aligned to real world needs. Assessments are often as interesting and fun as other activities. Moreover, because the criteria and the format of the demonstrations are wellknown in advance, there is less cause for test anxiety. Teacher roles are more supportive and nurturing, compared with traditional instruction.
