Sowing the Seeds of Citizenship and Social Justice: Service-Learning in a Public Speaking Course
Ransom, Lillie S.
Education, Citizenship and Social Justice, v4 n3 p211-224 2009
Students enrolled in two sections of the public speaking courses at a small liberal arts university were required to do 10 hours of service in a local not for profit agency. Student comments indicate that doing service-learning in these courses affected their self-perceptions and expectations as deaf persons in a local community. This article will also discuss the ways the university is responding to the service-learning pedagogy to encourage citizenship and social justice values for students who tend to be somewhat alienated from the surrounding community. (Contains 2 tables.)
