Do you want service learning activities and projects for middle and high school kids that make a difference on the local, national, and global scene? This workbook, part of Free Spirit’s How to Take Action! series by internationally renowned service learning expert Cathryn Berger Kaye, is what you need.
A Kids’ Guide to Helping Others Read & Succeed teaches about issues related to literacy (the ability to read, write, and comprehend), such as:
- cross-age tutoring
- helping English language learners
- math and number literacy
- computer skills
- a world view of literacy
- literacy challenges throughout history
- the plights of schools, languages, and libraries
- the benefits of book clubs and reading buddies
Kids explore ways to improve the literacy of others, read what others in the world (including young people) have done and are doing to help, find out what their community needs, and develop a service learning plan. The workbook includes facts, quotations, real-life examples, write-on pages, resources, a note to adults—and a lot of inspiration to get out there and make a contribution. Includes an exclusive interview with Ann Whitehead Nagda, author of Dear Whiskers, the story of a girl who tutors a young student from Saudi Arabia.
