Each participant will receive The Complete Guide to Service Learning, the companion workbook and two grade level specific children’s trade books to accompany service learning plans (over $50 value).

Service Learning is key to bringing learning to life, and this two-day exploration will give every participant the tools they need to integrate this unique teaching methodology into their everyday instruction. And who better to learn from than international expert, Cathryn Berger Kaye, M.A., author of The Complete Guide to Service Learning. Every session is a unique blend of information and small group interaction, demonstrating how this knowledge can improve teaching and learning in any classroom, any subject, anywhere.

Benefit from the “recipe” for successful integration. Every attendee will return to their school with an individual service learning plan, customized to work at their school, as well as the knowledge of how to lead a Service Learning workshop and the ability to coach their peers on the fundamentals of this teaching methodology.
