Breaking the Age Barrier: Multi-Generational Service Learning.
Degelman, Charles, Ed.
Service-Learning Network, v8 n4 Win 2001
This issue of "Service Learning Network" examines a world where teachers, students, and community members break the age barrier in service to their communities. "Images of Intergenerational Service" (Paul Simon), offers images of intergenerational service from political and personal points of view. "The Gathering of Elders" (Stella Raudenbush and McClellan Hall) uses an indigenous model of community to celebrate the relationship between young and old. "Youth in Decision Making," conducted at the University of Wisconsin (Madison) surveys the effects that young people can have on adults and organizations. The journal's "FYI" section acknowledges events surrounding September 11 with online lessons, research links, and service-learning project suggestions designed to provide students and teachers with coping and learning strategies. "Program Profiles" and "Generations in Exchange" (Wendy Lesko) surveys projects where citizens of diverse ages work together. (Contains book reviews and conference information.) (BT)
