Community-Based Learning: Engaging Students for Success and Citizenship (New)
Atelia Melaville, Amy C. Berg, and Martin J. Blank
A survey showed that 95% of students ages 13 to 19 believe opportunities for more realworld learning would improve their school. This coalition report says that community-based learning involves students in real-world problem-solving that is relevant and meaningful and addresses the problem of boredom and disengagement in school. The report includes a collection of teaching and learning strategies, including civic education, work-based education, and service learning. (54 pages)
