Serving To Learn. Adult Education Manual.
Gibson, Kathy; And Others
This manual provides examples of how Service Learning can be integrated into the adult education curriculum. The integration of activities can add real-life experiences to the academic curriculum and help create the capacity for students to improve their school and community. The three types of service activities include: (1) direct activities that require personal contact with people in need; (2) indirect activities, commonly implemented in schools, involving channeling resources to the problem rather than working directly with the individual in need; and (3) advocacy activities that require students to lend their voices and their talents to help eliminate the causes of a specific problem. The four stages in a well-organized service learning lesson plan are preparation, service, reflection, and celebration. The manual provides lesson plans for the content areas within the curriculum (language arts, math, science, and social studies). Other sections address service learning in electives, basic skills, business education, English as a Second Language, GED, and parenting. Contains 72 references and an appendix.
