Impacts and Effect of Service Topic Bibliography.
Vue-Benson, Robin; Shumer, Robert
This bibliography addresses the issue of service as an instructional strategy. The citations in the bibliography are divided among five sections. Section 1 contains references that focus on the social and psychological outcomes of participation in service. The impact of service on relationships with others, self-esteem, and moral reasoning are common factors under consideration. The effect of service on academic achievement, intellectual development, and school behavior is the concentration of research in section 2. Though fewer in number, the research in this section may be of greater importance in establishing service-learning as a credible educational practice. Much research considers both the psycho-social and academic impacts of service; section 3 lists these sources. The few existing reviews and bibliographies of the research literature are listed in section 4. Section 5 contains examples of service program evaluations. Literature pertaining to both K-12 and post-secondary populations is included. (EH)
