Heart Project: 365

The educators behind Heart:365 explain their process

A team of teachers at Eastern University Academy Charter School decided to change their students’ hearts through their habits by implementing an interdisciplinary curriculum that included the daily integration of service learning. The project included collaborative lesson planning amongst the head of instruction and all subject teachers, including Social Studies, Math and English. They used social media outlets to leverage their students’ engagement. The unit ended with a school-wide assembly where students showcased their learnings and work.

This sounds great. From this description, I would love to learn more about how you carried this out. How much time did this take per day/per class section? My curiosity is piqued, but I don't fully understand how to do this in my school without more information. Thank you! I can't wait to learn more!
