This document contains three issues, each containing one article, from the American Association of Community Colleges' Service Learning Resource Guide. The first article, "Service Learning and Curricular Integration" (Robert Exley), discusses service learning and curricular integration. It outlines several steps in implementing service learning programs: (1) identifying course competencies to determine if the current design is the best fit for today's community college student; (2) identifying the competencies best suited to service learning; (3) determining student learning expectations; (4) using reflective teaching strategies; and (5) creating a course syllabus. The second article, "Integrating Reflection on Ethical Issues To Promote Civic Responsibility" (C. David Lisman), discusses how service learning experiences can be structured in a way that achieves civic literacy. Some suggestions are to: (1) clarify the concept of civic responsibility; (2) discuss ethics in the classroom; and (3) engage students in community service activities. Three ethics case studies are presented. The final article in this document, "The Service Learning Journal: Writing to Learn" (Joan Gilson and Nan Ottenritter), discusses the goals for service learning journaling, and how to evaluate these journals. Sample weekly assignments are presented, as is a sample journal entry. (EMH)
