Service Based Teaching: Preparing Students to Learn and Serve – Grades 6-12 – No. 136

Service based learning prepares students to learn by making meaningful connections to their community, taking civic responsibility and in solving real-world problems from the classroom. Participants will be introduced to resources that further service learning goals and move students from passive to active citizens through the use of partnership schools, universities, faith-based organizations and non-profits.
Course objectives:

  • Plan for, and integrate, community action with instruction and student reflection.
  • Develop SMART goals for a service learning action plan.
  • Integrate student goals with development of a service learning plan for immediate classroom implementation.
