Overview

Service learning offers students the unique opportunity to learn both in the classroom and in the real world. This exciting teaching strategy, detailed in Berman’s second edition of Service Learning, motivates students to learn content information, processes, and skills while making authentic connections to their surrounding community.

Each project features:

Strategies for aligning service and curricular goals

Activities that foster reflection and self-evaluation
Tips for differentiating by tapping into multiple intelligences

In this single resource, teachers will find everything they need to successfully implement service learning projects, helping students gain deeper understandings of content while positively impacting their communities.

Editorial Reviews

Jeanine Yard
"This book is full of practical tips for the classroom teacher, including strategies for assessing student learning. In my work with teachers, they often ask for a checklist for planning service-learning projects. This book offers tips on some of the most critical aspects of project planning. Particularly useful are the sections in each chapter titled Assessing Risks and Tapping Into Multiple Intelligences."
Bob Koehs
"There is no better way to improve student attitudes and outcomes than to blend both meaningful community and global service with improved academic achievement.Sally Berman invites her readers to do just that."
Education Review
"Berman's book on service learning is an excellent how-to manual for creating structured, well-managed service learning projects for elementary through college-level students.The introduction and first chapter describe the principles of service learning while the remaining chapters present nine service learning projects that teachers can implement as is or adapt as needed. A must-have resource."
