Service Learning in the Middle School: Building a Culture of Service.
Fertman, Carl I.; White, George P.; White, Louis J.
A wave of the future in education is the inclusion of service activities in the school program with the accompanying expansion of school/community relationships. This book considers how to incorporate aspects of service into the ongoing academic program in middle school. The book contends that all middle school educators should become knowledgeable about and active in promoting service learning. It is comprehensive, specific, and replete with examples and guidelines. In addition to ample discussions of all aspects of service learning, the book includes an extensive listing, with addresses and phone numbers, of organizations and groups that are involved in some phase of service learning. Chapters in the book are: (1) "Building a Culture of Service at the Middle Level"; (2)"Service Learning, Curriculum, and Teams"; (3) "Elements of Service Learning"; (4) "Organizational Commitment: An Essential"; (5) "Developing Service Learning Opportunities in School and Community"; (6) "Reaching the Full Potential of Service Learning"; (7) "Sustaining a Service Culture"; (8) "Case Studies of Service Learning in Action"; and (9) "Service Learning Resources."
