#MichED Chat 4/30/14

"Service Learning" @ Wednesday, 8 p.m.

Topic: Service Learning

This week we will discuss the opportunites of service learning. Moderator Rachelle Wynkoop will host what will be a great #MichED discussion.

The #MichED chat team for 4/30:

Moderator - Rachelle Wynkoop

Greeter - Ben Rimes and Joe Rommel

Guest Welcomer - Todd Bloch


  1. Can you share a time when you personally engaged in service and learned some valuable lessons as a result of that service?
  2. How is service learning different than completing required service hours (say as a member of NHS or student council)?
  3. How is Service Learning integrated in your school? Do you have examples to share?
  4. How do (or can) teachers connect service learning with core content?
  5. Should service learning be required? If so, at all levels?
  6. (If time allows): How do you overcome student disinterest?
