Originally funded by a federal grant from Learn & Serve America, TIA meets important needs of aspiring teachers while creating a dedicated volunteer force assisting children, youth and adults with disabilities in Central Florida. The site is maintained by Dr. Rebecca A. Hines, University of Central Florida (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Students: Review all materials in the course modules before beginning the project. Click the button below to view modules materials.
The modules will take you step-by-step through the process of the Teachers in Action program. The goal is for you to act as a leader in completing a service-learning project with or for persons with disabilities. Be sure to watch the modules so that you fully understand how service-learning differs from volunteering or other field placements you may have done in your teacher training program.
Tip: Print the Getting Started.pdf and the PowerPoint Template, located in the modules, as a way to begin. These documents provide step-by-step instructions for completing your service-learning project and your narrated PowerPoint presentation. Your course instructor will share information about how to submit your final project.
