Foreign Language Professional Standards and CSL: Achieving the 5 C's
Lear, Darcy W.; Abbott, Annie R.
Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, v14 n2 p76-86 Spr 2008
The professional standards in the field of foreign language pedagogy focus on communication, cultures, connections, comparisons, and communities. Using those 5 C's as a framework, the authors examine student success at satisfying those disciplinary standards through community service learning (CSL). Data is used to present a qualitative case study. This case concentrates on the standards for foreign language learning, but the results hold meaning for CSL instructors of all disciplines, suggesting ways in which CSL can help students achieve the national standards of other disciplines and highlighting the fact that all CSL facilitates student learning about these 5 C's. (Contains 1 figure, 1 table, and 3 notes.)
