One of the fastest growing educational initiatives sweeping our nation's schools is service learning. It is an approach that moves beyond the concept of community service to a higher, more academically-integrated type of instructional practice. Service Learning: Curriculum, Standards and the Community provides essential information to help educators develop genuine service learning programs that provide a comprehensive community-based experience and integrate academic curriculum consistent with higher standards with a strong character education component.

Viewers will observe teachers developing and students engaging in service learning projects that promote academic, social and civic responsibility. Students take responsibility for choosing topics, developing plans, and engaging in meaningful community action. An essential part of this process involves student reflection, which clearly sets it apart from the more traditional community service approach. This community-based learning is motivational and highly rewarding. Students learn how to apply their academic skills, while at the same time becoming contributory members of our society.

A practical and valuable staff development resource for teachers and administrators committed to higher standards through authentic, community-based instruction.
