The Mwanje Project: Engaging Preservice Teachers in Global Service Learning
Doppen, Frans H.; Tesar, Jennifer
Journal of International Social Studies, v2 n2 p52-65 2012
This article reports the findings of a study that engaged preservice social studies teachers at two institutions of higher education in Ohio and West Virginia in a service learning to benefit the Mwanje school in Malawi. The findings suggest that despite some initial levels of apprehension the project enhanced the student teachers' global awareness and kindled their predisposition to engage their future students in service learning beyond their own region to include a global perspective as well.
