Where's the Learning in Service-Learning? by Janet Eyler, Dwight E. Giles, Alexander W. Astin

It is hard to overstate the importance of this book to the field. The research presented here should contribute significantly to those responsible for improving program effectiveness or advocating for this kind of pedagogy. 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. The authors present extensive data from two groundbreaking national research projects. Their studies include a large national survey focused on attitudes and perceptions of learning, intensive student interviews before and after the service semester, and additional comprehensive interviews to explore student views of the service-learning process.
