Setting the Stage for Collaboration at Shane's Inspiration
Our students buddied up with students of different ability levels from the Delevan Drive Elementary School at a playground in Sherman Oaks. After students were introduced to their buddies, they explored the park together, finding commonalities in tv shows, sports and favorite things. The US1 students learned how to communicate with buddies who were non-verbal to inquire about what their buddies wanted to do on the playground. In their digital literacies and advisory classes, students will continue their service learning by creating a model of an inclusive playground based on their field trip experience and the connections made with their buddies.
