How should we coordinate and monitor service learning at LHS?

The MYP Coordinator's support material identifies that "The IB is committed to teaching and learning through practical, real-world experience...In the MYP, community service as action is a requirement for every year of the programme...Ultimately, students need to be responsible for initiating their own action as they explore what it means to be responsible members of local and global communities."
Some suggestions for including service learning include:
Regular reflections by MYP students about their involvement in service learning and community service
Each class have one unit which has a service learning component.
Increased collaboration between the LHS service organizations, including IB, Key Club, National Honor Society and Student Council
We welcome your ideas on how to make service learning work in the LHS MYP. Please email your ideas to the LHS IB Coordinator, John Parks, at firstname.lastname@example.org
