Tipping the Tipping Point: Public Engagement, Education, and Service-Learning
Glickman, Carl; Thompson, Katherine
Voices from the Middle, v17 n1 p9-15 Sep 2009
Educators are seeing a ray of hope as policymakers across political lines acknowledge that prescriptive education is not working and as educators find success in involving students actively in real work and meaningful goals within their communities. Glickman and Thompson define service-learning, offer successful examples from real classrooms, and ask, "Are we ready to push further the connection of service and learning in our classrooms, schools, and universities?" (Contains 1 figure and 6 resources.)
