Abstract:

Service-learning and Writing: Paving the Way for Literacy(ies) through
Community Engagement discusses service-learning as a teaching and learning
method and its integration with writing. The various authors, from different
disciplines and institutions, present service-learning as a means of having
students practice writing in real world settings, and they show how
relationship-building and partnerships between higher education and diverse
communities produce benefits for all involved - the students, faculty,
administrators, and the communities themselves. This volume demonstrates how
writing instruction and/or writing practice can complement community
engagement and outreach at local, national, and international contexts.
Through different cross-cultural contexts and academic disciplines, the
various authors explore reflection, assessment, internalization, diversity,
and multiple literacies and their importance when integrating service-learning
in higher education and community literacy.
