Connecting Curriculum with Community
Gonsalves, Susan
Tech Directions, v70 n8 p37-38 Mar 2011
Identifying a community problem or need and helping to solve it via student-led initiatives is at the heart of service learning. Projects can tackle social issues with global impact or fill in a smaller local need using creativity and ingenuity. Service learning projects can range from a few weeks to a full semester or longer. Where service learning is the norm in school districts, the end result is usually student empowerment. Young people can provide meaningful contributions to the community. An added bonus is that they can simultaneously master curriculum and develop real-world skills that will prepare them for their future.
