Provide authentic, lasting learning opportunities for students in their own community

Service learning offers students the unique opportunity to learn both in the classroom and in the real world. This exciting teaching strategy, detailed in Berman′s second edition of Service Learning, motivates students to learn content information, processes, and skills while making authentic connections to their surrounding community.

This valuable resource explains the benefits of service learning and provides a step-by-step guide for using the instructional model. It features nine service-learning projects that are broken down into basic, intermediate, and advanced levels.

Each project features:

  • Strategies for aligning service and curricular goals
  • Tips for involving students in decision-making
  • Guidelines for managing different phases of the project
  • Activities that foster reflection and self-evaluation
  • Tips for differentiating by tapping into multiple intelligences


In this single resource, teachers will find everything they need to successfully implement service learning projects, helping students gain deeper understandings of content while positively impacting their communities.
