The Service Learning in the MYP workshop is open for registration!
Please register soon - Registration will close on September 11th.

This workshop will provide fun, hands-on professional development for teachers and administrators in school and district settings. We will explore the meaning and value of a service-learning classroom, service experiences as arising from the curriculum, service in a multi-cultural setting, integration with state standards, service learning assessment, models of service, and strategies for sustaining programs. Participants will work with others to develop service learning curricula and experiences based in their own classrooms and schools. They will see examples of student service products and be actively engaged as they learn about the benefits and components of successful service learning programs, common challenges and pitfalls, ways to motivate students to become involved, and how to promote authentic reflection practices.
