Online Course: Service-Learning by Design

Posted by National Youth Leadership Council on January 15, 2019

June 4, 2019 – August 31, 2019
Online Course offering 3 CEU credits from Augsburg University

Backward design is an approach to service-learning which yields more powerful student learning. It’s what we use in schools — because we know it works. Now we want you to know what we know.

Facilitated by Dr. Sue Root from the National Youth Leadership Council, in partnership with Augsburg University, this 10-week online course is for educators ready to enhance their service-learning practice.

Participants will:

  • Develop a standards-based service-learning unit plan including inquiry and problem-solving;
  • Design authentic formative and summative assessments for service-learning;
  • Build strategies for strengthening literacy into service-learning learning experiences; and
  • Understand how to incorporate students into the development and implementation of service-learning unit.

Service-learning helps students meet academic learning targets, positively impact their community, and gain leadership skills. In combination with a backwards design curriculum, service-learning gives educators the opportunity to transform their classrooms.

*price includes digital copy of text book: Service-Learning by Design
