Bridging the Gap: Connecting School and Community with Service Learning.
Edwards, Sarah K.
English Journal, v90 n5 p39-44 May 2001
Describes how the author's eighth-grade language arts inquiry-based instruction blossomed into student-based community learning, with students defining and seeking their own relevant goals, bringing the community to school with an art exhibit of tolerance, volunteering at a nearby elementary school, creating community gardens to fulfill a neighborhood need, and creating a new desert habitat community park bringing school and neighborhood together.
