Service Learning is a wonderful, inclusive, and effective way for teachers, students, and schools to contribute in positive ways to the areas they live and work in, including the school community, the local community, the national community, the EU community, and even the global community.
In our schools, there is a growing appreciation for the fact that students really care about issues in their local community. By engaging them in learning about real-world situations, we can support them in taking thoughtful and strategic action, and they can contribute positively to the well-being of people and the environment. When learning is applied in real-life situations, the purpose of that learning becomes so obvious and meaningful.
This course combines areas of Science (biology, ecosystems, habitats…), Geography (basic needs of humans, animals, and plants, geology…), and Social Studies (human impact on environments, human patterns of settlement, renewable and non-renewable resources…).
During this course, teachers will be guided through approaches to develop their own knowledge of these areas, through managing their own research, and collaboratively inquiring into ways of guiding their students in an exploration of the natural and man-made environments in their area. A focus will be placed on how to create opportunities to visit local areas of interest and connect with people involved in service-based organizations impacting local environments.
Participating teachers will examine the possibilities and potential of Service Learning in engaging themselves and their students in practical ways with local communities and environments. They will find out about strong and impactful Service Learning projects that other schools have engaged in. They will also support each other in designing their own programme to take back to their school and share with their students, colleagues and community.
