MHz Networks - Social Studies
Service Learning
Service learning combines topics of classroom instruction with related community service
activities. Assign an independent study related to immigration and refugee issues. This could
be a study of U.S. immigration policy; a survey of community attitudes toward the immigrant
population; the role of the UN High Commissioner on Refugees (UNHCR), the International Red
Cross or other organizations that work with refugees; or another topic related to immigrants and
refugees. As part of that study, students should do community service with local agencies that
offer services to immigrants and refugees. Students then submit a written report of their
independent study, which incorporates their experiential learning.
For volunteer opportunities, students can contact the American Friends Service Committee, the
local chapter of the American Red Cross, the county social services department, or local

variety of educational programs for schools and communities. The web site (see Resources)

immigrants in your school, or to find out about other educational programs available to
