Education | Youth / Community Work

© 2015 | 520 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Service-Learning and Civic Engagement: A Sourcebook focuses on historical, philosophical, social foundations, practices and models of service-learning and civic engagement. The title offers practical, jargon-free chapters applicable to any educational institution as well as community organizations that might consult the work.

 

58 signed chapters are organized into thematic parts, such as:

 

·         Concepts and Theoretical Approaches

·         Historical and Social Foundations

·         The Role of Service-Learning in Higher Education

·         The Role of the Community

·         Lessons Learned and Future Directions and more

 

Each thematic part provides a practical sampling of syllabi, lesson plans, activities and resources, and online websites and databases supporting service-learning. With this new sourcebook, we hope to provide a set of structured background, resources, and examples to guide readers into a relevant intellectual and culturally based understanding of the field while offering the needed tools to create and actively engage in quality programs.
