Planning Guides Make the Difference
“The planning guides contained in Connecting Service-Learning helped our sub-grantees see into their own world....and then helped for them to communicate to us more about their real world.....By the time we finished, they understood their own successes and challenges much better, and felt the originally begrudged time was well spent, insightful and productive…that they were the better for it….what you have done for the service-learning community you may never be adequately rewarded for, but we thank you.”

Using this Book
Connecting Service-Learning to the Curriculum is ideal for district and program training events, as an educator's planning and evaluation resource, and as a teaching tool with older students (grades 9-16) The book is composed of six sections. An introduction gives a rationale and road map for its use. Section II contains a brief history and overview of service-learning, defines service-learning terminology, and describes best practices for service-learning, at both the site and instructional level. Section III provides a engaging introduction to education for sustainability (EFS) and rationale for using sustainability as an umbrella goal for service-learning. This section provides best practices for incorporating EFS in the classroom and at the site level. Section IV, “From Experience: Service Learning in Action,” provides twelve case studies of service projects planned and implemented by elementary, middle, high school, and university students. Some of these case studies offer formal descriptions of programs and activities; others are more reflective in nature. Section five provides assessment tools. The last section includes two distinct detailed planning and evaluation guides (for site and instructional level) as well as completed examples of these guides. Also included is a helpful project example form that can be used as a documentation and sharing tool. The guides in the book have been used and refined for more than a decade by K-16 participants at CWI's nationally acclaimed Summer Institutes on Service-Learning.
