Teachers of Life--Learners for Life: Faculty Stories in Service Learning from Miami-Dade Community College.
Miami-Dade Community Coll., FL.
This publication contains faculty stories about experiences with service learning from Miami-Dade Community College. The stories are first-hand accounts of real learning and how lives change because of that experience. The stories come from teachers who see themselves as facilitators of a student's own active learning; who look for and commend their students for enhanced self-esteem, realization of new possibilities, and signs of having gained new perspectives; who understand that adult learners are unique and that experiential learning is a part of adult learning theory; who understand their student's needs, concerns, and interests and integrate them into their teaching; and who are actively involved as leaders in the classroom. The articles and authors included are: "Service Learning Creates Super Heroes," by Diane Sloan; "From Whence Cometh My Heart," by Paula Sanchez; "Of Service Learning," by Alberto Meza; "Service Learning: A Nagging Purpose," by Dorothy Sole; "Service Learning: Fostering Faculty Development," by Sharon B. Johnson; "Service Learning in the Arts," by Alberto Meza; "From Ideology to Playing Piano," by Lynda Pinto-Torres; "An Impossible Idea," by Marta Bret; "Learning That Sticks," by Nancy Davies; "Little League Baseball and Leadership," by Robert J. Exley; and "Reflections on My Involvement with Service Learning," by David B. Johnson. (VWC)
