K-12 Service-Learning Materials with a Focus on Civic Advocacy

Posted by HE-SL Listserv on December 17, 2019

Recent posts to the HE-SL Listserv presented K-12 service-learning materials with a focus on civic advocacy:

Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots and Shoots (https://www.rootsandshoots.org/) program – Each project starts with the equivalent of a community needs assessment and has rich resources and materials.

There is a list of resources on this topic beginning with The Complete Guide to Service Learning — Second Edition by Cathy Kaye that is all about civic action with specific content on 13 targeted areas plus a digital download (https://youth.mpls.k12.mn.us/uploads/complete_guide_to_service_learning_2.pdf) of an additional 250 pages of resources. On Cathy Kaye’s website there are many articles and relevant examples (www.cbkassociates.com/resources).

EcoEarth International (see www.earthecho.org and click on Educator Resources).

Going Blue: A Teen Guide to Saving Our Oceans, Lakes, River, and Wetlands is for middle and high school, while Make a Splash! is the primary school version. Both published by Free Spirit Publishing (https://www.freespirit.com/).

Dr. Riki Ott’s work on “Ultimate Civics”. Dr. Ott is a marine toxicologist and offers many well-prepared resources that may be found here at the website. https://ultimatecivics.org/mission/
