The careful research and thoughtful commentary provide a wealth of insights about service-learning and how best to do it. Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning A groundbreaking book that unearths what all service-learning researchers and practitioners need to know. Andrew Furco, director, Service-Learning Research & Development Center, University of California at Berkeley This timely volume is the first to explore service-learning as a valid learning activity.
