What might it look like? http://www.ceesa.org/phocadownload/handouts2011/cbkayesession1ibmeetssl.pdf; www.abcdbook.org-- 1. IB Meets Service Learning
1. Catheryn Berger Kaye, M.A.
has been aligning
Service Learning with IB Your purpose The difference is that with service learning you are learning about the problem and planning out the solution instead of just showing up. Service Learning is different
from Community Service because: You can address a problem in three ways: Advocacy: Indirect Service: Direct Service: You need to consider and understand: Your issue Your audience http://ctecommunity.wordpress.com/ What is the difference between service learning and community service? 2. Difference from Community Service Perhaps the most seriously for those of you thinking of implementing service learning in your classes, this book offers no analysis of which types of courses work best with service learning, and which do not. The authors repeatedly use the "soup kitchen" and "homeless shelter" examples, as though those placements would be of use to a course on Greek history or Organic Chemistry. One striking sentence in this context is the following: "Finding service that roughly matches course content is fairly straightforward." As an instructor with much experience in this field, I can tell you that this is just not accurate. Further, this brief sentence is the beginning and the end of their discussion of finding good placements. 4. Why not do it? 6. Structural Elements Service learning is a research based method of engaging students
in their learning by defining authentic tasks in the world, teaching students how to plan solutions for those problems, and facilitating those solutions with an authentic audience. Which means what? 1. What is it? Basically, it breaks down to this:

Service learning is about taking action in service to curriculum and addressing an authentic community need. It is all connected and organic. Service learning is often cross-curricular so that a variety of disciplines are included in the project.

You learn more and you learn better if you are learning for an authentic purpose, have freedom to be creative, and are participating in the world around you. In some ways the process for planning for service learning is kind of like the process we are going through: Who are we? What is our purpose? Be SPECIFIC. Who is our audience? BE SPECIFIC. What is the actual issue we are trying to address? How do we get our message
out effectively? What kind of service are we
going to engage it? Think here! First and foremost Service Learning allows us an avenue to provide application of student knowledge to authentic and relevant situations. Learning becomes applicable instead of just theoretical. Requires many of the skills identified in our texts as necessary for a 21st century workforce. Globally Relevant Service and innovative
approaches are increasingly
relevant at ALL levels. Appropriately
Rigorous: Depending on the
implementation this
can be the most rigorous
application of skills students
engage in. Recommended by the CDE for Higher DOK Students work with
authentic audiences
authentic problems/data 3."The writers of one article reported on the findings and outcomes of 70 studies evaluating the impacts of service learning. Most of the studies that they reported on were quasi-experimental studies where classrooms that were conducting high-functioning service learning projects were compared to classrooms that were not (matching ses, minority status, academic achievement, class size, etc. all the same between the classrooms). Obviously, while those factors are matched, you cannot match the same teacher and perhaps there is something about the inherent style of teaching in a teacher that would include service learning as part of the curriculum."
a.“Reviews of K-12 service learning research include close to 70 studies, most of which have found positive impacts on participating students’ academic, civic, personal, social, ethical, and vocational development.”
b.Academic Development—A study of classrooms that offered service learning and comparable classrooms that did not revealed findings with “significant differences between the two groups, with service learning students in the reading and language arts portions of the California Test of Basic Skills. In addition, the students engaged in service learning reported that they had learned more in their service learning classes than in non-service learning classes.”
c.Student Engagement—A study “found that most of the academic performance gains noted among service learning students had disappeared one year later. However, student engagement in learning remained significantly higher for service learning students than for students who did not participate in service learning” Requirements in many colleges (and increasing requirements are likely) Part of the ICAP These are held up as great examples of service learning schools. Colorado Opportunities: It's complex. It requires a commitment: To training. To reflection. To growth. To thinking differently. 4. year four- full year Capstone class (perhaps broken down by career interest?) We like the idea of a team of teachers for the capstone class. 3. Mentorship provided outside of curriculum
1. School focused projects
2. Local focused projects
3. State focused projects
4. Nation focused projects
5. Global focused projects Possibilities for Implementation: 1. Year one- project though English We think a 3-4 week project
time frame for the first 3 years
would be great. 2. Year two- project through social studies 3. year three - project through science and math 2. Our Preference:
Embedded in the Curriculum 3. Monetary investment
a. Training/PD costs.
b. Limited in many cases but there are many grant opportunities that we could look into
c. Students/school can build partnerships with business 4. FTE
a. Perhaps a service learning coordinator
b. Funding might be needed for additional FTE for capstone.
c. Depending on the implementation of the idea this could be within current operating parameters or could require additional FTE. 5.Social/Political considerations
a.Can build partnerships and include extra opportunities for students to engage with “real world” audiences.
b.Reaching out into the community can lead to heightened publicity and additional scrutiny
c. Unintended Consequences 1.Assessment
a. First, we would need to define the learning components to the projects and then discuss the ways that assessment would work here.
2. Impact of component (accountability mechanism) 6.Framework?
a. There are many frameworks
that have already been created 7.Non-negotiables
a.Assessment to a standard measure
b.College admissions requirements 8.Big Questions
a.Schedule (school year, minutes)
b.Credit courses, grad requirements
c. CAS requirement? If the content we teach is like the fabric of a quilt, service learning is like the backing of the quilt
that gives it form and cohesion. Science Mathematics Art World
Languages History English Art: Create art from the ashes and debris from the fire and sell it for the benefit of a charity. Photograph the recovery efforts over the course of a year. English: Interview those who lost their homes in the fire and write for a variety of purposes based on what needs are identified by the community members. Digital Media Studies: Create a video campaign that explains what people could do to clean the areas around their homes to prevent further disasters like these. Social Studies: Study the response to the fire from the local/state government and specifically how that applied to the population of our district and suggest ways to improve communication in case of future disasters. Research the economic impact of the fire on Manitou and organize an event to stimulate the economy. Mathematics: Study the effects of rain water on hills and calculate for retaining walls. Then, implement the retaining walls and study their effectiveness. Physical Education: Study the effects of wildfire smoke inhalation vs combustible materials in housing construction. Raise awareness of the requirements for safe cleanup. Science: Study the effects of ash on the water basin for Colorado Springs and work with the city to collect/analyze samples and make recommendations on cleaning/filtering the water. Foreign Language: Research the ways that wildfires are controlled in foreign countries and discuss (in the language being studied) how students are brought into the relief efforts. Then report out to the community any relevant information. P.E. How does Service Learning match up with the IB learner profile? Capstone
