Appalachia Educational Lab., Charleston, WV.; Kentucky Education Association, Louisville.
As increased attention is placed on the role of schools in the development of character, community service/service learning, the concept of providing instrution through the study of community issues, action to address them, and reflection on the experience, can help meet school and community goals. Through community service/service learning, students at all levels can develop empathy, cooperation, citizenship, and self-esteem. The Kentucky Education Reform Act (KERA), 1990, mandates graduation requirements that emphasize application and integration. This guide and resource manual was developed to offer practical assistance for implementing service projects. The guide includes: (1) project background and methodology; (2) rationale for service learning and project implementation recommendations; (3) study group member findings; (4) project descriptions; (5) annotated resource list of materials and organizations with a bibliography of additional resources; and (6) 10 appendices of forms used and relevant readings. The projects are based in Kentucky. The resources and organizations are regional and national. (JLS)
