Empowering Students Through Empathy and Collaboration

Empowering Students Through Empathy and Collaboration | Youth Service & Volunteering | Scoop.it

Every year around this time, my students come together and collect all the monies donated within our school for Penny Harvest, a program by Common Cents, Inc. that serves to help schools create service learning projects for children. It starts with young leaders prompting others in the school to make donations to a cause of their choice, but it often evolves into community service projects.

 

This year, for instance, our school decided to dedicate our Penny Harvest to Hurricane Sandy relief, and will gear our community service projects toward non-profits that focus on feeding those in need or helping in animal shelters.

The Future of Higher Education Looks Nothing Like the Present | Youth Service & Volunteering | Scoop.it

The first two years of a four-year college experience could be very different than they are now. During those early years, students might rely more heavily on online instruction outside of class, while doing more work on teams in class. Faculty could serve as educational coaches rather than instructors, and classwork could be more heavily combined with internships or service-learning experiences

Allison Hylton's curator insight, December 4, 2013 4:45 PM

Anyone skeptical about incorporating service learning into the classroom because of the “constraints” of the CCSS would should read this article. In this web article, authors Cathryn Berger Kaye and Maureen Connolly write about the intersection of the Common Core State Standards and service learning.  The article uses the CCSS outline of the seven “Capacities for the Literate Individual” to explain how service learning and engagement helps students to reach these seven targeted skills and behaviors.  To do this they break down service learning into five stages and work to explain what elements of growth and learning take place within these stages.  The article concludes with a brief explanation of why service learning matters, which in their opinion is to bring the CCSS “to life.”
