Service Learning in the Social Studies

Active Citizenship Today (ACT) is a "unique social studies service learning program" that requires students to learn about the public policy associated with community issues they identify in their local community. This web site provides a step-by-step guide to implementing ACT with your students. The process involves selecting a local problem they want to address, researching the problem more thoroughly, conducting research on the related public policy, designing and implementing the project, and reflecting on and evaluating the process. This resource is excellent for those who decide to pursue such a valuable undertaking.
