  5. Service-Learning (S-L) Faculty Comments “The course (NURS 3701) was already in existence, but no faculty member volunteered to do it. It is sad to say that is how I got involved, but it really did change my life!!! It was a wonderful experience.” -- Susan Barnes, spring 2008 “Richer context for student learning.” -- Donna Hodkinson, teaches 6 different Spanish courses as service-learning, fall 2008

  6. Service-Learning Faculty Comments “It is quite difficult for college students to fully understand the difference between children’s cognitive processes and abilities and their own when students only study theory. It is also difficult for college students to appreciate the power and benefits of folk tales and fairy tales ‘in theory.’ college students also listen with skepticism when told reading to children helps a child succeed in school. All three of these theories become visible and comprehensible to college students as they participate in children’s education at Wilson Elementary School.” -- Judith Palladino, THRE 2941: Children’s Theatre Lab/Storytelling, spring 2008
