  14. What’s The Difference? Service Learning Community Service Community Based Learning

  15. What’s The Difference? Service Learning A method of teaching and learning that challenges students to identify, research, propose, and implement solutions to real needs in their school or community as part of their curriculum. Discovering that a local stream is degraded, students and teachers work with an environmental group to design a project relevant to the class curriculum. They conduct water quality tests and research possible contamination sources. Students then analyze data and present their findings to local officials. The environmental group uses the data for their watershed program. KIDS Consortium, 2009, www.kidsconsortium.org

  16. What’s The Difference? Community Based Learning An approach that enhances the curriculum by using community members and places as resources for learning. A teacher decides to center a unit of ecology on a stream near the school. Students visit the site frequently, collecting water samples and identifying plants and animals. KIDS Consortium, 2009, www.kidsconsortium.org
