  53. 53. EC²=Explore, Commit, Explore Commit  Ec2 is a process model meant to capture the variability of student civic development.  We are using the AACU Civic Engagement VALUE rubric to capture the content of student civic development.
  54. 54. Theoretical bases for this model  Student development is nonlinear.  New models of development stress variability.  Context matters in student development.  Development does not always equate with progress.
  55. 55. Empirical bases for this model: Derived from narrative investigations Maren Annie  First-Year: Tutored at Hillview  First-Year: Volunteered at Head Start Longley School and at an after-  Sophomore: Action research school program project on aspirations at Hillview  Sophomore: Evaluated a  Junior: interviewed boys across school-based mentoring program Maine about academic  Junior: Taught English in engagement Hungary  Senior: Community-based  Senior: Student Volunteer research thesis on literacy with Fellow in charge of student ELL Somali children at Head volunteer coordination at Start Longley School

More Student Narratives Christine Jess  First-Year: Volunteered at soup  First-Year: Tutored in first kitchen semester and became program  Sophomore: Action research coordinator in the second at Hillview project on aspirations at Hillview  Summer after first year:  Junior: Volunteered with HIV+ Developed mentoring program children in India for women victims of domestic  Senior: Student Volunteer abuse Fellow in charge of student  Sophomore/Junior: Hillview volunteer coordination at Adult coordinator Learning Center  Senior: Student Volunteer Fellow at Hillview; CBR thesis
  57. 57. How does this process model tie in with the content model?  Where do our Bonners begin?  Will they be at the initial point of our developmental goals?  Which developmental goals will they choose? Will they all choose the same goals and leave off some of the harder ones?  How will students proceed through the levels of the developmental goals?  Will students skip some levels, get stuck at others, or cycle back to earlier levels?  How will we assess their progress?  What will students submit to their e-portfolios?  Through what process will we examine submissions?
