A Florida high school is offering an Engaged Citizenship course, in which students learn how to successfully complete community service projects. The course, an elective for all students, is intended to encourage students to get involved in their community or build upon an existing interest in community service. "It gives the students an opportunity to see a global perspective on life," said the assistant principal for curriculum, Rosemary Owens, who came up with the idea for the course.
