The service-learning movement, which combines classroom learning with pragmatic “hands-on” work in the community, continues to grow in importance throughout the world of education. One of the primary groups that serves as a fine source of material on service-learning is the National Service Learning Clearinghouse (NSLC), located in Scotts Valley, Calif.. The homepage provides visitors with a good overview of the group's work, as it features new funding opportunities, a “hot topics” area, and pertinent information about upcoming conferences, such as the annual national conference. A good way to get a handle on the wide world of service learning is by looking through the fact sheets area, which is topically divided and contains information on the areas of partnerships, character education, and risk management. Even better is the resources and tools area, as it includes samples of syllabi and lesson plans that incorporate the principles of service-learning.
