Abstract:

A wealth of activities, ideas, resources, and more to encourage K-12 service learning. Service learning can be so much more than picking up trash or recycling, although both are a great place to start! Cathryn Berger Kaye, a former classroom teacher who is an educational workshop leader and speaker, has written an eloquent, exhilarating guide to help teachers and youth workers engage young hearts and minds in service learning. Kaye presents service learning, its importance, elements, steps, and challenges, within classroom and community settings. The book features chapters on a variety of topics (animals, the environment, hunger, homelessness, social justice, and more) and provides relevant quotations, background information, activities, real-life examples, and ideas that have worked for other teachers. In addition, special "Bookshelf" sections highlight and describe nearly 300 books that the author feels offer insightful teachable moments about service learning, responsibility, caring, and helping, as well, as ways to encourage discussion and make the lesson last. Interviews with authors James Howe, Michael J. Rosen, Francesco Jimenez, and others provide additional insight into the character-building importance of giving back. Includes reproducible handout masters.
