Degelman, Charles, Ed.
Service-Learning Network, v8 n3 Fall 2001
This issue of "Service-Learning Network" looks at the ways that service learning can transform local government into a learning laboratory for civic education. The first article, "Creating the Missing Link: Local Government, Service Learning, and Civic Education" (Todd Clark), introduces the issue. "Service Learning and Local Government" (Ann Rappoport) offers a rationale and methods for using service learning to explore local government. "The Learning Laboratory: An Interview with David Korth" looks at service learning from the unique perspective of a social services planning manager in Hayward, California. The issue contains a "Program Profiles" section that describes two programs designed to link service projects and civic education to the exploration of community resources and local government agencies. The "Review Corner" section looks at a unique online course and two publications that introduce teachers and students to the diverse possibilities for linking service learning and local government.
