Benefits2: Adapting to Community-Based Learning
Benefits2 is a series of papers addressing ways that rural schools and communities can work together so that both will thrive. The previous three issues described two broad types of projects that address both curricular and community goals: service learning, which combines community service with structured opportunities to apply academic learning; and entrepreneurial education, which provides the community with needed products and resources while teaching students academic and work-related skills. This issue focuses in greater depth on the kinds of changes and commitments needed from school systems if these types of projects are to succeed.
