Experiences with Service Learning

Hi All: I believe this is a plus for both educators and the community. I read an interesting article in the learning center related to service learning. http://static.nsta.org/files/ss0703_32.pdf Title: Rock Showdown Has anyone else involved in or have knowledge of Service Learning in their schools? Share it in this forum. Thanks, Adah

I would also be curious to hear teachers' experiences with Service Learning, and how we can incorporate environmental literacy and/or STEM learning at the same time. Look forward to hearing from you, Alison

I have been very fortunate to meet some outstanding educators who are do amazing work with students and teachers around environmental literacy! Below are some links to individuals, organizations, and programs who believe in the importance of educating the next generation on how to care for our environment. Please share if you know of any individuals/organizations/programs that are supporting students and teachers around environmental education.
