The We Are Together: Action Research Project pack invites young people to plan an activity or event which connects people in their school, group or community.
It can be used by school pupils or those learning at home, as well as extra-curricular clubs, youth groups, uniformed groups, Duke of Edinburgh, Youth Parliament meetings, student councils and more.
About the Pack
During this project, students will plan an event or activity which helps people to connect.
This action research project is broken into four parts:
- Observe how people are connecting around you, and what makes it difficult for people to connect with each other.
- Plan your activity or event.
- Take action by putting your activity or event into practice.
- Reflect on what happened and think about what you could do next.
This pack will guide your group through each of the stages of the project, so that by the end of it you will have explored the question: "How can we build stronger connections with others?" Whether they choose to host a games evening, hold a bake sale, organise a litter pick, or lead an origami workshop - the group should approach the topic in a way that most inspires them!
This is a group project, and should be undertaken with 3-5 people.
This pack has been designed to complement our Global Learning Wall Planner, with the idea that it can be completed over the course of one term, with one section being completed per month. However, the project is not time or subject specific, so it can take place at any time of year, or over any length of time - whether over a week, month, term, or year.
