Service Learning Center at Glendate Community College
The healing community, a group of 32 students and their 4 instructors, will be sharing a special experience together for spring, ’97. The students will take four courses together. Anatomy and physiology, Algebra, English or ESL, and Volunteerism. The instructors—Joe Beeman, Carol Paxton, Lin Griffith, and Deborah Dentler—have adapted the courses to emphasize the connections between them: algebra problems will have nursing applications and term papers for the writing course will be on health-related topics. For the Volunteerism course, students will be placed in hospitals or clinics and will discuss their service experiences in class and in reflection journals.
