A NOTE ABOUT ALL ONE COMMUNITY LESSON PLANS

The One Community lesson plans are intentionally designed for use in ANY educational environment and with ALL educational, cultural, religious/spiritual, and philosophical approaches to teaching and learning. They are designed without an ideological approach and specifically so they can be adapted to include the views, preferences, methodologies, and/or ideologies preferred by different parents and teachers.

For maximum flexibility and adaptation, they are also designed to be combined to teach multiple subjects at the same time. Doing this increases the creativity, effectiveness, and fun of your learning environment. Once we are on the property and operating our version of the complete school and Education for Life program, we will be adding video examples of how to combine the lessons. In the meantime, visit the Teaching Strategies page for a list of suggestions.

TEACHING TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF MOVEMENT AND DEVELOPMENT

 Teaching Technology with the subject of Movement and Development Technology

  • Look in your environment for different types of technology that involves movement or has moving parts. Make a list*. With an adult, take apart 3 different things to see what they look like on the inside.
  • Use “connects” or legos to make a project* that integrates 3-5 different movements.
  • Build a ‘Rube Goldberg’ machine* with a minimum of 30 different types of movement that results in 5 completed tasks (ex: open a door, turning on the lights, making toast, and pouring juice, etc.).
  • Do research on existing applications or computer programs that are intended to help chart progress and development. Pick the one you feel would be the most beneficial to you and start using it. Report* your results after 1 week.
  • Design a computer program/app* that simulates your favorite sports movement (ex: kicking a ball, catching something, swinging a club, juggling, etc.).
  • Pick a specific field in technology that you feel most drawn to. Research the progress and development of that field from it’s inception to current day. Report* on your findings and include what you speculate to be future developments in that field of technology.
  • Research the technological field of study that interests you most to see what the biggest gap or area of improvement is to advance the field of study as a whole. Create a solution* and implement it.
 Teaching Innovation with the subject of Movement and Development Innovation

  • Think about all the different ways that people have introduced you to how to learn about something and write them down*. Which do you prefer and why?
  • Learn about the basic stages of learning. List *20 different things that you are currently learning, which stage you are at with each of them, and how you can get to the next stage.
  • Make a project* that shows which ways you feel help you learn the best and explain why. Include one style of learning that you didn’t enjoy and how it could be made to be more fun for you.
  • Journal* all of the forms of movement that you use in a week. Think of a new way to move or to get from one place to another that has an additional benefit and teach that form to someone else.
  • Research/study 50 innovative/creative ways that people have designed for either transportation or to help people with physical impairments to become mobile. Make a presentation* of your top 10 favorites and why you felt they were innovative and why you chose them.
  • Study how people learn and how information is moved around the world. List your findings* and the ones you feel are most effective present why.
  • Develop a new system for transportation that would account for the movement of all species equally and make a strategy* for its implementation.
  • Research obscure, unlisted, unpublished or unconventional innovative methods of transportation suggested by top scientists such as Tesla. Develop a working model* of one of their ideas or a new model from a combination of ideas that could be described as innovative and progressive enough to change transportation as we know it for planet Earth.

  • Explore the blue level values and choose the 5 you feel are most positively beneficial to movement and create a method* to positively enhance movement base.
  • Explore the blue level values and choose the 10 you feel are most positively beneficial to development and create a method* to positively enhance development based on this.
  • Observe how Love, Honesty, Diversity, etc. develop people on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels; make a presentation* or lead a group discussion* based on your findings.
  • Choose the violet value that you feel could create the most positive global change and create a method for a ‘movement’ or developmental strategy* to help develop this value within others or to spread change in relation to the growth or practice of that value.
