Series: Service Learning in the Disciplines Series
This practical guide is intended for faculty and service-learning directors, combining the how-to information and rigorous intellectual framework that teachers seek. What distinguishes this volume is that the contributors are writing for their peers. They discuss how service-learning can be implemented within teacher education and what teacher education contributes to the pedagogy of service-learning. The book offers both theoretical background and practical pedagogical chapters which describe the design, implementation, and outcomes of teacher education service-learning programs, as well as annotated bibliographies, program descriptions and course syllabi.
