Service Learning in Undergraduate Textiles and Clothing.
MacDonald, Nora M.
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v86 n4 p39-44 Win 1994
In a clothing for special needs class, one student project involved becoming a clothing consultant to a blind man. The student and client evaluated and coded his wardrobe using a Braille-adapted computer, made Braille labels for clothing, and shopped to fill gaps in the wardrobe. The service learning project connected classroom learning with a real-world application. (SK)
