Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Highly recommended, affordably priced, and ready to be used, this workbook starts in the hands of teachers, parents, and youth group leaders. It goes from there into the hands of students.”—Robert Schmidt, Ph.D., associate professor and service-learning coordinator, Department of Environment and Society, Utah State University

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
This workbook is a guide for groups to learn, take action, reflect, and share their projects with others. Some major reasons for homelessness are unemployment, natural disasters, and too many people. The people who are hungry and homeless in our country are often immigrants, seniors, families, children, veterans, and the unemployed. A girl living in a shelter describes her day. The Oxfam Hunger Banquet is explained. Places to begin research about the needs of the community are listed, with space to fill in one's findings. Next, identify what others are doing. Then develop a plan of action and write a proposal which can be shared with your school, students, and others in the community. Put your plan into action, take pictures, and write it up. Spaces are given for comments throughout the book. At the back is a list of Internet sites and books for learning. A note to teachers and youth leaders and a bibliography are included. This is one of the "Service Learning for Kids" series. Teachers and youth leaders may find this helpful to encourage and guide activity-minded young people. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
