A Strategic Plan to Involve School-Family-Community Partnerships via Service Learning

Service Learning is a term used to describe planned learning activities in which students learn curricular lessons/materials through school and/or community service. An example would be using math and writing skills to plan, create, and publicize a community garden space. The students benefit from using curricular skills to create a concrete entity, learning valuable lessons about serving others, while the community benefits from a new garden space. 

For this assignment:

  • Create an annotated outline that explains the steps you would take to help students plan, create, and publicize a project benefitting the community. 
  • Student academic, curricular, physical, and social development should be explicitly detailed in your outline. 
  • Additionally, your outline should clearly demonstrate a connection to service learning ideas, identifying the project, how it will proceed, and citing/referencing at least three scholarly service learning sources in APA style. 
  • Finally, while there is no specified length for your outline, your outline should fully explain what you intend to have students do and why you intend to have them do it.
