The Activist Learner: Inquiry, Literacy, and Service to Make Learning Matter
Access a Copy
This dynamic book explores a variety of ways teachers can integrate service learning to enliven their classroom, meet the unique developmental needs to their students, and satisfy the next generation of standards and assessments. The authors demonstrate how inquiry-based teaching with service learning cultivates, requires, and rewards literacy. Through the pursuit of service-learning projects, students learn how to develop perspectives on real-world issues and to develop intrapersonal and interpersonal connections and compassion. At the same time, students acquire literacies essential for creating a culture of civic engagement and for mastering the Common Core.
