I wanted to draw your attention to sources for high-quality service-learning videos that can be useful as you promote and practice service-learning in your classrooms, schools, and school districts. Two of these sources are available on-line and two are available in VHS format.
TEKS Video Series — Texas Center for Service-Learning (On-Line)
Short, sample video clips from a previously produced five-part series exploring the effectiveness of service-learning as a methodology for addressing the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Sample video clips show student, teacher, administrator and community perspectives on service-learning.
Service-Learning Profiles and Videos (On-Line)
Includes three video clips of service-learning projects in California, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania, as well as an overview clip of service-learning.
Learning In Deed Videos (VHS)
Two introductory service-learning videos are available free from the National Serice-Learning Partnership, through the support of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. These are excellent resources for use in teacher trainings, presentations at school board or faculty meetings, or as an introduction to service-learning for young people.
Finally, the National Service-Learning Clearinghouse has an extensive, searchable library of K-12 service-learning videos. These videos are available for Learn and Serve America grantees and other service-learning practitioners.
