Change the World with Service Learning is written in a clear and easy-to-use style designed for the teacher integrating Service Learning into the curriculum. The book guides educators from all content areas and grade levels to create meaningful Service Learning projects with their students by providing a no-fluff, step-by-step, teacher-to-teacher description of how to create, plan, teach, and celebrate Service Learning which meets and exceeds local, district, and national curricular expectations. The tools presented in Change the World with Service Learning will lead to projects which can have a lasting and positive impact on both the participating students, as well as those they are designed to serve.
