What are student activities? Why do schools have student activity groups? What are the benefits for students, schools, and communities? These are some of the questions that Student Activities in Today's Schools addresses. Klesse has reviewed relevant educational research to provide an overview of the essential learning for all youth that is available from participation. What are those benefits and who benefits? Why don't all young people participate? Are there ways to make student activity programs in schools more inclusive? What will these programs look like in 5, 10, and 15 years? Schools must educate and develop our youth to meet the challenge of participation and survival in a global economy. The skills learned through student activities provide the foundation for adult participation as citizens of our democracy. So, how do we best prepare our young people for the future? Read this book to find out.
