Linking Service Learning & Standards.
Degelman, Charles, Ed.
Service-Learning Network, v8 n2 Fall 2000
This theme issue explores the connection between service learning and standards-based education. In the lead article, "Service Learning and Standards: Are They Compatible?" (Brian Loney), an educator applies his extensive experience with Active Citizenship Today, a successful social studies service-learning program, to a representative set of content standards. The issue contains a "Best Practices in Service Learning" section and a "Program Profiles" section which features several innovative classroom-community projects that link service learning to standards-based assessment. The "Review Corner" describes two publications that link or assess service learning in the context of standards-based education. The issue concludes with a list of resources of interest to educators and others working with youth. (BT)
