HOW TO DO IT

Popular wisdom says that the important attributes of service-learning are:

genuine community need

community partnerships

preparation

structured reflection

clear connection to the curriculum

student voice.

Your project should be structured to include all of these attributes. With that in mind, let's consider how to go about it.

 

Generally speaking, there are three stages to a successful service learning project. They are:

1. Preparation

2. Action

3. Reflection

Each of these stages is an essential part of the service learning experience.

The next few pages will look into each of these stages in detail.
