Editorial Reviews

Mary Whalen
Katy Farber's book, Change the World with Service Learning, is an important contribution to this dynamic field of education. It clearly articulates the current research that supports the academic, personal, social, and civic values in our current drive to quantify education. Farber provides practical recommendations for teachers in approaching service learning and especially the role of community members, a significant consideration of many valuable stakeholders that are often not included in this important community work. Filled with inspirational teacher voices, the resources in this book can be easily adapted to classroom teachers across grade levels.
Julie Smart
With this book, Farber guides teachers from beginning to end in their quest to set up service learning projects. From how to pick topics, set up groups, and generate local support, to class handouts, assessment rubrics, and thought-provoking questions, Farber has written a thorough how-to guide for teachers. She provides meaningful advice for both new and veteran teachers and a convincing stance on how service learning benefits all students.
Dana Hudson
Farber has successfully combined the practical real experience that can only come from a classroom teacher with the inspiration and enthusiasm that service-learning projects create in students. And she has made it so easy to use. The book is filled with templates, talking points, stories, and lots of ideas. This book should be on every teacher's resource shelf and required for every pre-certification teacher in college. It is an easy step-by-step guide to introducing, implementing, and assessing service learning projects in upper elementary to high school classrooms of any subject. Bravo Farber!
