Back in Print: Bring Learning to Life – Service-Learning In Action

Created in collaboration with Cathryn Berger Kaye, this is a new edition of the popular companion piece to the Bring Learning to Life video. In addition to still providing K-12 practitioners an overview of the basics of service-learning, the updated 6-page guide now includes information on the new K-12 Standards for Quality Practice and the revised 5 core components of service-learning developed by NYLC and Shelley Billig at RMC Research. Teachers can use this guide to help integrate service-learning into their classrooms to strengthen and enhance academic and civic development.  Practitioners in less formal educational environments such as after-school programs and youth groups may also find the guide useful for implementing service-learning projects in community-based settings.
