Service-Learning & The First-Year Experience: Preparing Students for Personal Success and Civic Responsibility
Chapter: "Writing as Students, Writing as Citizens: Service-Learning in First-Year Composition Courses," co-authored by Nora Bacon, UNO faculty member.
This monograph documents the congruence of two powerful educational concerns: the success of first year students and the potential of service-learning as a teaching-learning strategy. Over the past 10 years in particular, both these concerns have gained an ever larger group of adherents. However, until recently, neither has fully realized how important each could be to the other or the degree to which many of their values, challenges, and even goals overlap.
