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.

The Arts

  • Choose 2 people and have them work together with you to help you draw a picture of ‘cooperation and collaboration’.
  • Work together with a friend to perform a song or dance about cooperation or collaboration.
  • Work together with a younger person. Have them draw an imaginary creature they would like to have as a toy. Then create a 3d model/ version for them.?
  • Work together with two or more people to write and perform a song or play about cooperation and collaboration, paying special attention to ensure that everyone feels that all of the work is split evenly among your group.
  • Together with at least 3 others, give a live presentation without words that is purposed to demonstrate how music is affected when you all collaborate, versus when you do not, versus when some of you collaborate and others improvise.
  • Choose a public space and get approval to create a sculpture or artistic feature there. Choose two other people to help you brainstorm on the vision for what you would like to create in that space and to implement the creation of that feature. Create the feature with the help of those two individuals and get feedback from the public on your creation and implement any changes the majority of the public would like to see.
  • Create an art program that is specifically designed to help children with special needs learn more about cooperation and collaboration and specifically encourages collaboration for all of its projects.
  • Work with professionals in the fields of theater, music, and visual arts to create lesson plans about cooperation and collaboration amongst the different artistic branches.

Trades

  • Together with a friend, create puppets that represent people that work in your favorite trades.
  • Work with two other people to create a diorama or other type of 3D representation of the workplace of a place that you think would be fun to work in for a day.
  • With your parent’s permission, take a day to go with an adult family member or friend of the family to visit their workplace. Choose an adult that works in a trade that you would like to learn more about, and make an effort to get to learn at least one new thing and try to do one thing with the cooperation and collaboration of an adult.
  • With another person, create a blueprint for a woodworking, mosaic, or fabric Project that you will both be creating together. Map out who will create which components, and then build the project together. Then create a final document that shares each of your viewpoints of the experience including what went well and what could be improved in future cooperation and collaboration projects.
  • Line up an apprenticeship or internship in a field of your choice for at least two hours a day, for one week. Make sure it is one where you will have hands on experience working along with the person that is your mentor. Write a report about how having that hands-on collaborative experience with that person affected your ability to learn and experience that trade.
  • Create a trades/crafting program that is specifically designed to help adults with special needs learn more about cooperation and collaboration and specifically encourages collaboration for all of its projects.
  • Find a master in a trade of your choice and collaborate with them to get the information that you need to create an open source manual for how to create more education, awareness, opportunities for people that are trying to learn and become skilled in that trade.

cooperation, collaboration, theme, icon, technology

Technology

  • Talk about your most technologically advanced collaborative toy, what makes it technologically advanced, and what makes it collaborative.
  • Choose a form of social media (with the guidance of an adult) and collaborate on a task using social media. Write a short report that explains why you chose the one that you chose and explains how social media was or was not a good form of collaboration for that task.
  • Write a 5 page report on how computers affect collaboration. Include past (before internet), present, and future projections for how they have and will help collaboration.
  • Research global transportation of people and goods, and collaborative ways in which they have changed and evolved. Collaborate with at least 1 other person to create a 3-10 minute multimedia presentation about your findings.
  • Explore how technology has improved inner household and/or community collaboration and cooperation. Come up with a new way to increase collaboration/cooperation even more. Implement it and report on your results.
  • Research artificial intelligence and the ways in which it has, is, and how it may potentially be developed to aide in collaboration and/or cooperation. Choose a technological way to present your results.
  • Review 15 different types of collaborative software and/or technological tools. Use one of the tools to collaborate with at least one other person to write an open source guide on them and their potential benefits to collaboration.

cooperation, collaboration, theme, icon, innovation

Innovation

  • Pick your favorite subject and think of a way to learn or teach it collaboratively with a small group of kids.
  • Imagine 3 things you think are unrelated and draw a picture that relates all these things together in a collaborative way.
  • Ask 5 of your friends what their favorite things to do in groups are. Combine all those things into a new way to teach something.
  • Talk to 5 friends and have them imagine any random thing they like, and write a story that puts all 5 things together in a collaborative way.
  • Ask 5 of your friends what their favorite things to do in groups are. Create 5 different combinations of all of those things and use it as a new way to teach something, where each combination has a different one of the 5 as the main emphasis.
  • Collaborate with 2 people to create, give, and evaluate a poll for 50+ people you know on what their preferred method of learning is. Then create a new learning style that incorporates the aspects you discovered in the same proportion you discovered. Then teach at least 5 people from your study something and ask for their feedback on the learning process. Document and share the entire process and results in any way your group feels is best.
  • Create a research report that explores various aspects of NLP and various famous users/teachers of it, focusing on the different ways in which NLP is or is not used cooperatively and/or collaboratively.
  • Research and create a thorough report of the aspects of successful cooperative and collaborative businesses and your thoughts on how these aspects could be integrated into a field or specific business of your choice.
  • Collaborate with at least one other person and research the top 5-10 successful companies you feel have best integrated cooperation and collaboration into their business models and generate a recommendation for how either: 1: 2 or more of these companies could work together to create something even better, or 2: how to integrate the primary successful collaborative aspects in a way that could benefit the entire world. Open source your entire project.

TEACHING VALUES WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF COOPERATION AND COLLABORATION

cooperation, collaboration, theme, icon, values

  • Talk about three things you like to do as a group or team. How do you think that doing that as a group makes it better in your opinion?
  • Get together with three people you like to collaborate with and as a group, talk about 5 things you think are most beneficial to work on together and why you chose each.
  • Talk to 10 ‘different’ people and ask them what their 5 favorite things to do are in a group and create a chart or visual display from the results. Then go back to those people and share your project with them and collaborate with them to make it better, and integrate their ideas. Then write a report on what you learned about collaboration in this process.
  • Interview 20 people you think value collaboration, then choose the person you feel would be best to collaborate with and collaborate with them about how increasing collaboration could change the world. Include the results of the 20 interviews and how/why you chose the 1 person to work with.
  • Pick two organizations, one that you consider to be a leader in collaboration or that considers collaboration as one of its highest values, and another that you feel needs significant improvement in collaboration and write a paper about how and why you would suggest applying the collaborative elements of the first to the second, and how that would effect the second. Include the benefits and potential repercussions to the second company.
  • Talk to ten people about 15 ways their life would be different if they made collaboration their #1 value. Take what you learned and find 1-5 people to collaborate with and come with a strategy for increasing collaboration in the lives of the people you interviewed and/or others. Create an open source tutorial of the entire project.
  • Create a collaboration tool based on the things you value about collaboration and ideas you have about increasing collaboration, and set it up so that it is constantly evolving itself as others are improving on it in a way that is ever evolving independently of you.
