May 2013 – Colegio Internacional Puerto la Cruz, Venezuela
Organized by Alex Wenzel and through the leadership of the Make a Change (MAC) Committee (spearheaded by Alex Wenzel and Cathy Martell), the school has seen a transformation in the way global awareness and social responsibility are incorporated into the curriculum. The committee provides inspirations, resources, professional development and support to create meaningful project-based learning projects in every classroom.
This symposium represents a philosophical shift in the school-wide preparation of globally and socially aware learners. This has been an on-going process of change work within the school and community. See the full article on a model for Service Learning and the capacity for change in every school in this article written by Alex Wenzel and published in AASSA’s December 2012 publication.
