Service Learning Worksheet.
One of the benefits of teaching for social justice is that teachers and their students can get involved in service-learning as a way to learn the curriculum while also addressing real-life problems that face local communities. Extending learning beyond the classroom can lead to increased retention and allows students to practice their critical thinking skills.
After analyzing “What the Heck is Service Learning?” research other service-learning opportunities for K-12 students that promote cultural knowledge and the principles of social justice. https://www.edutopia.org/blog/what-heck-service-le…
Using the “Service-Learning Ideas Template,” submit a list of five potential service-learning projects for K-12 students.
While APA style format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using documentation guidelines.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
