The Impact of Partnership-Centered, Community-Based Learning on First-Year Students' Academic Research Papers
Feldman, Ann M.; Moss, Tom; Chin, Diane; Marie, Megan; Rai, Candice; Graham, Rebecca
Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, v13 n1 p16-29 Fall 2006
This article presents a control group study of the influence of a partnership-centered, community-based learning program on students' academic writing. The improved writing of first-year students in the Chicago Civic Leadership Certificate Program (CCLCP), we argue, results from the deeply situated learning that took place in the context of reciprocal, community-based relationships. We also argue that research on the impact of community-based learning should take into account the contemporary university's emerging paradigm of engaged learning and research, which calls for a redefinition of partnership and reciprocity. (Contains 5 tables and 4 notes.)
