Service Learning in the Middle School Curriculum: Staff Development Handbook.
Schukar, Ron; Singleton, Laurel R.
This staff development handbook is intended to help teachers and other professionals prepare, design, and lead staff development programs for middle school educators interested in augmenting their curriculums with service. Designed to be used as a comprehensive guide to planning and delivering staff development training, the book suggests a thorough outline and numerous training strategies for planning and conducting service learning training at the middle school level. The book is written for teachers who desire to introduce and train colleagues in the service learning methodology. The book assumes that the would-be trainers have:(1) experience in planning and developing curriculum-based service projects in their own classrooms and schools and (2) little or no experience in creating and conducting staff development training. Based on these two assumptions, the book does not provide extensive background "on" service learning but rather focuses on preparing, designing, and leading staff development training "in" service learning.
