How can we teach students about Service-Learning?
It’s important for students to learn to serve others, but at times it becomes ‘just another box to check’ instead of teaching the importance of service. How can we teach our students about the importance of Service-Learning?
At my school, we require students to do six hours of service-learning per quarter. We include the service in the grade book as a giant test grade. Students get a chance to serve by participating in Honey Sunday and the Crop Walk. They also visit the Veterans’ Home and mow lawns for neighbors.
