What Does the Research Say about Students with Disabilities and Service Learning?
Frankson, Delsue; Nevin, Ann
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (Chicago, IL, Apr 9, 2007)
The purpose of this paper is to summarize the research on service learning pedagogy into the realm of professional practice for students with disabilities. At this point in the development of a research base for service learning, an emerging need for studies is reported. Limited research exists which studies the impact of service learning activities with respect to the retention of students with disabilities, particularly those who are also African American. The authors suggest that one role that university faculty can take is to create, implement, and evaluate service-learning programs in urban communities that incorporate students, adults with disabilities, the local public school k-12, and teacher educators and researchers from nearby colleges and universities.
