Earning College Credit for Your Peace Corps Service.
Anderson, Terry; Ross, Gloria
This guide offers suggestions to Peace Corps returnees for getting college credit for Peace Corps service in the context of how prior learning (experiential learning) relates to mainstream academics. It offers a set of writing exercises to help the ex-volunteer evaluate his/her Peace Corps service. It gives suggestions for putting together a portfolio to document what the volunteer has learned. In addition, the guide discusses acquiring credit towards an academic degree and how much credit the Peace Corps experience might be worth. Appendices contain sample pages from a portfolio which was used in applying for credits in sociology and additional information on assessment of college-level knowledge acquired through Peace Corps work by means of the College Level Examination Program. Contains a 17-item bibliography. (GLR)
