Hope, Warren C.
NASSP Bulletin, v81 n587 p39-45 Mar 1997
Service learning is a versatile, developmentally appropriate strategy that integrates public service into student instruction and connects the classroom with the surrounding community and the world. Service learning promotes personal, social, and emotional growth; develops a sense of civic responsibility; provides leadership opportunities; and prepares students for the world of work. This approach is particularly suitable for middle-school students and for curriculum goals. (22 references) (MLH)
