Batchelder, Thomas H.; Root, Susan
Journal of Adolescence, v17 n4 p341-55 Aug 1994
Investigated effects of characteristics of service-learning experiences on development of undergraduates. Participants (n=48) in service-learning courses and control students (n=48) wrote pre- and postresponses to social problems. Service-learning students made significant gains on certain cognitive dimensions and had significant increases in prosocial decision making, prosocial reasoning, and identity processing. (Author/NB)
