I just opened the mail this week to discover my new book, the hot off the press, called Change the World with Service Learning: How to Organize, Lead and Assess Service Learning Projects.
Why should we care about service learning? Because it can keep kids in school, improve their grades, attendance, attitude, civic engagment, and sense of responsibility. In short, service learning can help close the acheivment gap that exists in American schools and connect kids to their communities.
Service learning is not community service. It is an under used teaching and learning method that solves community problems by having students research, explore, and connect to and share with their communities.
What’s the book about?
Change the World with Service Learning is clear, direct, and easy to use, and was designed for busy teachers integrating service learning into their existing curriculum. This book guides teachers from all content areas and grade levels to create outstanding service-learning projects with students like no other book does. Change the World with Service Learning is a no-fluff, step-by-step, teacher-to-teacher description of how to create, plan, teach, and celebrate service-learning projects that meet and exceed local, district, and national curricular expectations.
Know a teacher? Please send them this post. All teachers can use this book to integrate service learning into their existing curriculum, and will be inspired by the success stories and reasons to lead service learning projects with their students.
Or enter them in this giveway. Yep, I’m giving away one hot off the press copy of this new book. Just add a comment on this post for a chance to win. Good luck!
