Accountability in Action: Service-Learning Partnerships in Practice
Dotson-Blake, Kylie P.; Dotson, L. Kaye; Glass, J. Scott; Lilley, Brett D.
Journal of School Counseling, v8 n29 2010
This article begins with an exploration of the issues facing beginning school counselors and the educational requirements for school counselor education programs. Following this exploration, the discussion moves into a description of how service-learning can be used to foster understanding and transfer abstract professional concepts into practice. A case example of a class incorporating service-learning is presented, providing counselor educators with an in-depth understanding of the key foundational underpinnings necessary for effective service-learning projects in school counseling coursework. Potential challenges are discussed and suggestions for future research are shared.
