Thanks to support of the National Service-Learning Partnership (NSLP), the East Bay Conservation Corps (EBCC) is delighted to announce that The East Bay Conservation Corps Charter School Framework and the EBCC’s Service-Learning as Civic Engagement: A Resource Guide for the Elementary Grades can now be accessed on the NSLP website.
You can link to The East Bay Conservation Corps Charter School Framework via the NSLP homepage at http://www.service-learningpartnership.org by clicking on the Teaching Resources and then Best Practice link. Or you can link to the document directly at http://www.service-learningpartnership.org/teaching/bestpractice.cfm#curriculum.
The East Bay Conservation Corps Charter School Framework illustrates the application of service-learning as a major teaching strategy and translates the guiding principals of the school into daily classroom practices. The framework contains curriculum matrices that tie learning outcomes to specific service projects.
The EBCC’s newest resource guide, Service-Learning as Civic Engagement: A Resource Guide for the Elementary Grades will be available online through the NSLP website by December. Developed with support from the Walter and Elise, Sr. Fund, this guide helps elementary school teachers implement service-learning in their classrooms and features service-learning units implemented in grades K-5 at the Elementary Level of the EBCC Charter School. The guide addresses the use of service-learning as a way to develop civic engagement in young children as well as offers assessment tools and resources for educators interested in implementing service-learning which supports civic engagement.
