MOVE FROM IDEAS TO PURPOSEFUL ACTION; GUIDE STUDENTS TO UNDERSTAND DENSE AND COMPLEX COMMUNITY ISSUES
Moving from ideas to purposeful action: this is the heart of service learning. All educators seek ways to add depth and meaning to learning, and strategies that will guide students to understand the dense and complex issues facing our communities. This can best be accomplished by extending academic connections beyond the confines of the classroom through a reliable and effective process: service learning.
Through a vivid articulation of the five stages of service learning, you will be more able to strengthen everyday teaching as well as the capstone moments that occur throughout the school years. The process of service learning also aligns with transferable 21st century skills and competencies, best practices for teaching and learning, and assists schools meet other key priorities.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
These two days are designed for educators in grades K-12 to provide practical strategies you can use immediately. Whether you are a service learning novice or bring years of experience, this workshop is for you!

Laptop, tablet, smart phone – or good old-fashioned pen and paper.

Four Corners Experience – Bringing the Service Learning Stages to Life
Through a highly interactive experience we see key components of service learning beginning with the stage of investigation. In small groups we go through the process of considering what matters to us, clarifying an authentic need, raising questions of significance, and doing action research. Hold on to your seat belts for a lively process. Then we pause and reflect – what happened? What did I learn? How is this applicable for my classrooms?
