Double Consciousness and the Future of Service-Learning
Hickmon, Gabrielle
Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, v22 n1 p86-88 Fall 2015
The author begins this essay by reflecting on an article penned twenty years earlier, "Does Service-Learning Have a Future?" (Zlotkowski, 1995) that called educators to attend seriously to the academic aspects of service-learning (SL), to situate the pedagogy strongly within the academy as a means of legitimizing and expanding the work. The focus in this essay is on improving the nature of experiences across demographic groups. It begins by questioning what SL experiences look like across identity groups and working to ensure the pedagogy truly becomes a space dedicated to social justice, community, and equality--values it has always championed.
