Responses: Why Do You Do Service-Learning, Why Will You Continue To Do Service-Learning?
Recently, the Learn and Serve – Michigan Team developed a survey calling for responses on “Why Do You Do Service-Learning” and “Why Will You Continue To Do Service-Learning.” We will post the responses to these questions leading up to the 2011-2012 school year.
This post features Angelia Salas, Senior Program Officer at the Michigan Community Service Commission.
Why Do You Do Service-Learning?
Service-learning helps fulfill the human promise early in life. Each and every single human being on this planet has gifts to contribute and it seems important that we tap that potential as soon as possible. If we create that spark in the academic setting, the potential for learning is intensified.
Why Will You Continue To Do Service-Learning?
Good teachers have used service-learning in the classroom forever. It will remain an important way to reach students and meet academic and community needs. We created a movement over the last two decades. That won't end.
If you are interested in seeing your response appear on our blog, follow this link http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/6SX3BPR and take our short survey to tell us why you do service-learning and why you will continue to do service-learning.
