Service-Learning: Using the Language Arts to Make a Difference
Shanklin, Nancy
Voices from the Middle, v17 n1 p41-43 Sep 2009
The benefits of service-learning are numerous, and some are hard to come by any other way. Service-learning projects help teachers and students come together in new ways, demonstrate how language skills can help accomplish real-life tasks, and engage students in a way that spurs them to learn more thoroughly and quickly. The lessons can last a lifetime and make a real difference to the students and those they help. (Contains 1 figure.)
