Bibliography
Index

'This book is full of practical tips for the classroom teacher, including strategies for assessing student learning. In my work with teachers, they often ask for a checklist for planning service-learning projects. This book offers tips on some of the most critical aspects of project planning. Particularly useful are the sections in each chapter titled Assessing Risks and Tapping Into Multiple Intelligences.' Jeanine Yard, Learn and Serve - Michigan Program Officer 'There is no better way to improve student attitudes and outcomes than to blend both meaningful community and global service with improved academic achievement. Sally Berman invites her readers to do just that.' Bob Koehs, Service Learning Coordinator 'Berman's book on service learning is an excellent how-to manual for creating structured, well-managed service learning projects for elementary through college-level students. The introduction and first chapter describe the principles of service learning while the remaining chapters present nine service learning projects that teachers can implement as is or adapt as needed. A must-have resource.' Education Review, January 2007
