This is a spiral bound, print copy of "Service-Learning by Design" by Dr. Sue Root.
Explore the three steps in backward planning of service-learning in detail including: 1) Identifying Desired Results; 2) Creating Assessments (both formative and summative) to measure student progress and achievement of desired results; and 3) Designing Learning Experiences that support the attainment of learning goals.
“I’m very excited to see this important new resource, which will help move the whole field of service-learning into a new phase, with more consistent and powerful outcomes for students, their communities, and the whole democracy. It’s a user-friendly resource for educators, based on the best research.”-Peter Levine, Associate Dean for Research, Tufts University’s Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life
“Very interesting and really helpful concrete examples of the points in your argument for an alternative model. This seems to move the service-learning and core standards discussions a big step forward.”-Constance Flanagan, Bascom Professor in Women, Family and Community, School of Human Ecology, University of Wisconsin-Madison
"Service-Learning by Design is fantastic! It offers a clear, step by step approach to working through intricacies of service-learning...something the field has sorely needed. This work is going to help practitioners in innumerable ways and it will surely be one of the seminal pieces that we'll all point to years from now."-Andrew Furco, Associate Vice President for Public Engagement, Professor, Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development, University of Minnesota
