Abstract:

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