Description

Writing Partnerships constitutes the first comprehensive overview of service-learning in composition studies and will be of particular interest to educators at the high school through university levels who want to combine writing instruction with community action. Deans describes three kinds of school-community partnerships: writing for the community, writing about the community, and writing with the community. College-level case studies are woven into discussions of how service-learning relates not only to first-year, upper-division, and technical writing courses, but also to critical pedagogy, writing across the curriculum, ethics, and literacy. Appendices include descriptions of more than 60 writing-centered service-learning courses and programs, as well as a sample syllabus, student writings, and a list of resources for service-learning teachers and administrators.
287 pp. 2000. Grades 9–College. ISBN 0-8141-5918-4.
