Service Learning Component (Optional)

"Service learning is a form of experiential education in which students engage in activities that address human and community needs (defined by the community) together with structured opportunities intentionally designed to promote student learning and development. Reflection and reciprocity are key concepts of service-learning."         Barbara Jacoby, 1996.


This class gives you the opportunity to do Service Learning. If you choose this option, a Service Learning designation will appear on your transcript. Service Learning credit requires approximately 15-20 hours of work. One Project involves communicating with Native inmates at the Snake River Correctional Center who have requested materials on Native culture. I am seeking a student or 2 to assist me in producing Spring's  Native American Film  Festival.  Alternatively, you may tutor on the Coeur d'Alene Reservation through the Service Learning Office. Please see me if you are interested in working on these projects.

As part of your Service Learning experience you'll write a Reflective Essay illustrating what meaning you gained from the experience as connected to our course.

If you participate in the SL component of the course your Final Project Paper will be 5-6 pages in length, rather than 8-10 pages.
