Scavo’s Community Based Learning Class
CBL, Community Based Learning, is a unique opportunity for Scavo students to earn multiple credits while experiencing hands-on the importance of history in the Des Moines community. Through community partnerships with the Iowa State Historical Society and several other local historical groups, students visit area museums, examine historical artifacts, and learn from guest speakers who lived through significant moments in history. This historical background provides the basis for also learning about literature, giving students the opportunity to earn Social Studies and English credits for the class. In addition to the variety of learning opportunities, we also partner with a 4th grade class at Monroe Elementary School and Hoyt Sherman Place for community service hours.
