What People are Saying About This

Joseph Cammarano

This is a refreshing book that provides readers with opportunities to think about how to effectively use service-learning in their courses. As one who has used service-learning scores of times, I completed this book with a new understanding of its value to the liberal arts, new ideas for how I can deepen my own use of the pedagogy, and a renewed enthusiasm for service-learning as a method to better educate my students.
