Campus Compact National Center for Community Colleges 6th National Conference


When I added the Service Learning component to my ESL 100 class at Kapi'olani Community College, my overriding goal was to increase my students' awareness of the community where they live and study. Because this is also an expository writing class, I hoped that students' competencies in writing English would also improve. I expected that the students who worked on the newsletter would also have greater awareness of writing for different audiences than the teacher. The projects met those goals and more.
