Special Education Service-Learning Units

​MSDE offers these service-learning units, which highlight links between projects and the MSC, as resources for use in conjunction with existing local curricula and service-learning implementation plans. The lesson plans featured here give suggested grade levels and content areas. Most of these lessons can be adapted to virtually any grade level or content area. The lessons can be implemented in one content area, or adapted for use as interdisciplinary units. They also can be modified for length and expanded or contracted as needed to fit your circumstances. Feel free to use them as a starting point and modify them to meet your unique needs.
