A Glorious Revolution integrates the ideas of service-learning, positive youth development, and model communities into a book with a comprehensive message about making communities more democratic. Specifically, the book argues that through service-learning an educator can teach higher-order thinking, such as information literacy, problem-solving, and critical and creative thinking. Educators learn how to teach each of these skills. The book also argues that service-learning fosters skills for career success. The book also introduces a new way to think about what constitutes a model community. The authors use current and classical research, books, and web sites on the topics presented in the book and employ examples of how different communities currently engage their young people. The end of each chapter includes exercises designed to foster critical thinking.
