Active Learning in Northside
Often times the best type of learning is through engaging and doing!
You might participate in “Active Learning” by…
- Volunteering for an activity you haven’t participated in before (Data Collection, Oral History Transcription, Newspaper Route etc.)
- Attending a service at St. Joseph’s
- Listening to an oral history and reflecting on what you heard
- Attending a Town Council Meeting
- Taking a walk around Northside or the block you live on and taking notes on what you notice
- Interviewing a fellow volunteer from the Jackson Center
- Chatting with St. Joseph’s volunteers at Heavenly Groceries
- Sitting on your porch and interacting with people on your street
- Engaging in a conversation with a neighbor on your block
- Playing basketball at Hargraves
- Pursuing an inspiration that came from a conversation you had at a pop-up party by doing more research into neighborhood history
- Following the stone walls around campus
- Sitting at the Neighborhood Gateway for 30min. An hour.
- Frequenting a local business in the Midway Business District (Bread and Butter, Midway Barber Shop, Mama Dip’s, Tonya’s Cookies, the Tienda, etc.).
- Coming up with your own unique idea!
