Understanding Poverty and Income Distribution through Community Service part of Starting Point: Teaching and Learning Economics:Teaching Methods:Service Learning:Examples
This course introduces students to topics of income distribution and poverty. Groups of two to four students volunteer at one of a number of community agencies that serve low-income households (homeless shelters, soup kitchens, food banks, after-school programs etc). Students visit their chosen site twice–at the beginning of the term and again at mid-term. They use their service experiences as a spring board for discussion of course material.
