Service Learning in a Social Studies Methods Course: Experience and Place-Based Curriculum
Todd, Reese H.; Brinkman, Stephanie Gray
Educational Forum, v72 n1 p79-91 2008
When an instructor reframed the social studies methods course to include a service-learning project, both education certification students and a museum's outreach program benefited. University students gained practical teaching experience leading a children's summer class about local prairie dogs, and the museum gained quality teachers. Enthusiastic responses promoted future partnerships between the university and the museum. Project evaluation addressed the role of field experiences in teacher preparation, museum education partnerships, service-learning pedagogy, and place-based curriculum content.
