More and more, students, instructors, and institutions are seeing how service learning--a means of combining community service with academic education--enhances the studies, careers, and overall lives of students as they work toward becoming civic-minded citizens and leaders. Service-Learning Companion provides guidance to students who have enrolled in a program with a service-learning component, or a special individual course that focuses on service learning. Its versatile structure allows instructors to implement it as a companion to a main text or to use it as a stand-alone text. Concise and affordable, this text provides clear definitions of service learning terminology, a theoretical foundation, a step-by-step process of implementation and assessment, and specific examples. Hands-on exercises that allow students to respond to real-life situations and practice their responses in the classroom prepare them to perform effectively in communities.
