Why Lesson Planet?
Build on high schoolers' awareness of what's wrong with society. Here they examine Jimmy Carter's extensive involvement in volunteer action in the local, national, and global arenas. Define and explore concepts -- philanthropy, citizen, volunteer, civic involvement -- and situate them as integral to both American culture and a fulfilling life. Readings provided are material for a jigsaw activity that nurtures collaboration, discussion, peer teaching, and public speaking skills.
