Mathematics and Science Faculty Service Learning Handbook.
Resources developed by "Campus Compact," a coalition of over 550 colleges and universities established to create and enhance service learning opportunities for students, are presented in this handbook for mathematics and science faculty. A brief introduction defines service learning and provides a continuum of types of service learning, such as one-day fundraising tasks, class-related assignments, volunteer tutoring, and paid internships. The first section provides sample documents used in administering programs, including a development form for integrating service learning into a course, a reasoning objectives matrix, a student application, a learning hour report, and an evaluation form. The next section underscores the importance of reflection in the service learning process, offering models and guidelines for facilitating reflection among participants. Selected resources are provided in the following section, and a sample analysis of the effects of tutoring on academic achievement. The final section contains sample syllabi designed to assist instructors who wish to integrate a service learning component into their math and science courses. Contains 14 references. (MPH)
