Education > Personalising Learning/Learning to Learn
Service Learning in the PreK-3 Classroom Among early childhood education books, this one stands in a class by itself. It is the only comprehensive, research-based guide for implementing service learning across the preK and early elementary curriculum. Based on field trials with over 3,500 students and 215 educators, this pioneering resource presents all the background knowledge and skills you need to effectively use service learning in your preK or primary classroom. Rich in both theory and practice, the book combines best practices in service with differentiated content-based learning to meet the academic and social needs of young children in meaningful ways. The guide’s numerous sample service learning lesson plans are based on field-tested preK and early elementary classroom projects and correlated to national standards.
