dc.description.abstractThis paper details the theoretical underpinnings of the curriculum unit designed. The basic structure and components of successful service learning inform the unit, which is designed in response to features of the informal learning context. One such feature is the lack of content standards in informal settings, which results in the selection of learning outcomes by the designer as part of the curriculum design process. In this case, outcomes were informed by skills demanded by the modern workforce and developmental needs of adolescents. Finally, specific themes of cooperative and collaborative learning, student choice, reflection as formative assessment, and use of authentic assessments are discussed. Some components of this paper and the curriculum unit appeared in coursework completed in Education 3620 Principles of Curriculum Design, and Education 3200 Foundations of Learning and Development.en_US
