Description: This is the third manual in a series on community-based education. This manual includes lessons, tools, resources, and forms that will provide guidance to assist educators and students in entering their and connecting to their community for the first time. This manual also will provide support and valuable resources for those already out there in the community conducting community-based projects. The manual is divided into four sections: Exploring Your Community, Needs and Opportunities Assessment, Designing and Conducting a Community Project, and Community-based Project Examples. The first section includes lessons, tools, resources, and forms that will assist and support those educators interested in having students better understand the community where they live and work. Section two provides resources for educators on conducting needs and opportunities assessments in a community in preparation for project selection. The third section provides a process for selecting and conducting an authentic community-based project. Section four provides a detailed case study that follows the process that is outlined in this manual.
