The Service Learner as Engaged Citizen.
Battistani, Richard M.
Metropolitan Universities: An International Forum, v7 n1 p85-98 Sum 1996
Service learning in higher education can be a powerful method of citizen education, by building students' concrete civic skills in the areas of intellectual understanding, communication and problem solving, and civic attitudes of judgment and imagination. A basic condition is that broad definitions of service and citizenship be assumed, and used to develop measures of impact on service learners. (MSE)
