Quick Hits for Service-Learning

Indiana University Press is pleased to announce the recent publication of:

Quick Hits for Service-Learning
Successful Strategies by Award-Winning Teachers
Edited by M. A. Cooksey and Kimberly T. Olivares

"A useful compendium of service-learning examples." —Paul Rogat Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen: Living with Conviction in Challenging Times

Service-learning, the integration of classroom instruction with community service projects, is rapidly gaining momentum as a successful teaching and learning strategy that benefits both students and their communities. Quick Hits for Service-Learning presents more than 80 examples of innovative curricula, developed by educators in a wide range of disciplines, designed to combine community service with instruction and reflection. Seven chapters offer tips for classroom activities that focus on the education of children and youth; civic awareness, engagement, and activism; language, literature, and communication; global studies and local outreach to exceptional populations; the study of history, the social sciences, and the arts; business, industry, and the health sciences; and the teaching of research and other "tools of the trade." Brimming with ideas that busy faculty members can easily adapt to their own classrooms, this book is a valuable reference for faculty new to the field or seasoned practitioners looking for fresh ideas.
