I mentioned this in my reply to Ian above as well, but you are exemplifying a trend of educators looking at their own work as more transformational than just going through the motions or required learning. I love CAS but without the “why” in place CAS can also become a checklist of things required. The “why” is what you’re referring to in your response. You’re perhaps also recognizing the need for this to be “bigger” than an outsourced learning experience (as seems to be the grade level items you describe). Don’t get me wrong, those are great first steps, but in my mind they are merely the beginning of what I like to call a “culture shift” toward service minded communities. :-).
