Critical Issues in K-12 Service Learning
EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING PROJECTS ARE DEMANDING TO ADMINISTER AND COORDINATE, WHETHER FOR INDIVIDUAL TEACHERS OR OVERALL PROGRAM ADMINISTRATORS. Students are engaged with the perspectives of the community as well as these of the classroom teachers and other students. The responsibility of the learning shifts to the student and is more student centered: the community site becomes the classroom, the student becomes her own instructor, and the community resources become the textbooks. While such projects highly motivate students, developing and implementing them requires an ongoing commitment to change.
