DAY 1 Begins! Be the First to Give and Help CWI Keep Up the Good Work!
We need your help! Please join us in helping to make this unique publication available to the K-16 and community based educators who rely on it to expand upon the good work they are already doing. In this era of standardized and often sterilized education, Community Works Journal has a very different story to tell. The story we share involves teachers and students around the world making a great difference in their communities through academically based service projects. We inspire, with moving examples, what education really can look like when it takes the classroom to the community.
Your support for this important fundraiser (whether smaller or larger) will support the continued existence of this one of a kind, high quality publication that now has an audience of teachers and administrators, quite literally, around the world.
Since 1995, CWI has published Community Works Journal to promote K-16 teaching practices that deepen learning and skills by investing our young people with prupose, in their local community and the world—learning by doing. We focus on making place, service, and sustainability a core part of school and community programs. The Journal features teacher and student written articles, essays, and reflections—along with curriculum overviews that highlight the importance of place, service, and sustainability in a relevant and meaningful education. Learning by example applies as much to educators as it does to our students and this is what we hear consistently from our readers.
The Journal features stories, essays, models and resources that inspire other teachers, by example. We showcase innovative strategies, practices and curriculum that involve educators and students in meaningful work within their communities. We stand for a shared belief in an education that is centered on building community—with students as active learners in service to their community.
