Self-Esteem and Service Learning.
Pereira, Carolyn
Social Studies Review, v36 n2 p43-44 Spr-Sum 1997
Maintains that self-esteem is more than simply "feeling good" about oneself. It derives from having experienced meaningful success. A service learning program can accomplish this and avoid the self-preoccupation and narcissism that occasionally accompany self-esteem efforts. Service learning can replace this with empathy and commitment. (MJP)
