The Impact of a Social Justice Service-Learning Field Experience in a Social Foundations Course
Tinkler, Barri; hannah, c. lynne; Tinkler, Alan; Miller, Elizabeth
Critical Questions in Education, v6 n1 p16-29 Win 2015
This interpretive study examines the outcomes of using a social justice service-learning field experience in a social foundations course to help illuminate for teacher candidates the often "invisible" institutionalized inequities of public schools. The findings demonstrate how social justice service-learning can be used as a field placement to increase preservice teachers' exposure to diversity, to help refocus attention on the needs of individual learners, and to assist teacher candidates in understanding and questioning existing school structures.
