Service Learning and Student Engagement: A Dual Language Book Project
Roessingh, Hetty
Canadian Journal of Education, v35 n4 p284-307 2012
A model is proposed followed by a case study of collaborative project work between student teachers, teachers and English language learners in kindergarten and grade 1. As a model, service learning provides a framework for making explicit linkages between course-based, credit bearing academic content, the identified need of the community school, and the exigencies of preparation for engaging young English language learners in literacy rich instruction and conversation. An array of learning artifacts provides evidence of the impact of service learning on the quality of learning experiences for all participants. (Contains 6 figures.)
