The Success Skills through Service Learning is designed to provide a comprehensive approach focusing on ethical, social and intellectual skill development.
Service-learning is a form of experiential learning where students develop knowledge and critical
thinking skills while addressing genuine community needs. Mastering the standards will enable students to develop personal integrity based on positive values; to learn respect and responsibility; and to learn citizenship in schools, and community.
The most effective way of learning these skills is in context, placing learning objectives within a real environment.
The Service Learning workshop will equip high school educators with the skills and materials necessary to meet the state’s employment standard for teaching Service Learning, Course Code # 9395, using Success Skills through Service-Learning teaching strategies. The state will offer the last Service Learning workshop April 23-24, 2013. The Spring Service Learning Registration Form is available here. For more information on future trainings click here.
Note: Beginning school year 2013-2014, systems should substitute course code #6014 for Success Skills Through Service Learning. After school year 2012-2013, #9395 will no longer be a valid number for this course.
