The aim of this institute is to deepen participants’ understanding of meaningful integration of SL into a current unit and to consider strategies for integration of SL into current curriculum.
Participants will discuss various methods for assessment of SL tasks and reflection (methods: formative and summative) and consider the importance of a balance of opportunities for SL across the school’s SL program (PreK-12)
Additionally, participants will observe SL learning in action, in a classroom, and integrate SL into a current unit.

Learning Outcomes

As a result of participating at this institute, you can expect to be able to integrate Service Learning meaningfully into unit planning and create assessments for service learning. To do this we will provide understanding, knowledge, tools, and resources for Service Learning in curriculum unit integration for schools to effectively implement service learning in the current curriculum.

Delegates can be expected to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Using prior knowledge of SL to develop understandings and best practice and using the SL Standards and Benchmarks to intentionally integrate SL into the curriculum
  • Building understanding of assessment and linking assessments in SL units to subject-specific assessment criteria
  • Exploring specific SL subjects (Global Citizens/Issues and Social Entrepreneurship) as courses for international schools for SL integration
  • An understanding of the POPs Framework and ability to apply this to a specific context (their school and community).
