About the Course

Shirley Chisholm called service “the rent we pay for the privilege of living on this earth.” In this class, educators will get the opportunity to create conduits to engage the students they teach in this rent using classroom content they’ve already established.

Authentic service learning advances the curriculum through the integration of essential skills (leadership, observation, resourcefulness, resilience, etc.) with content knowledge, thereby fostering competency, confidence and community. With educators who understand both the value and process of service learning, we can foster a knowledgeable youth willing to be eager members of the social fabric who have the capacity to learn before taking action.

In The Complete Guide to Service Learning, Cathryn Berger Kaye provides a handbook for what service learning is before offering a thematic approach to ideas for implementation. With a firm understanding of the service learning rationale and process, educators and instructional leaders will confidently enable students to view the content they learn as more relevant to their lives and view themselves as positive agents of change.

I really enjoyed this class. Having come from a college where service learning is an expectation I had always wanted to integrate service learning into my primary classrooms. However, I never knew where to start the process for myself and my students. Taking this class provided me with a plan to get started and a resource to come back to in order to refine my students and my ideas after implementation.
