"Service-learning has been successfully used to enhance students’ understanding of motivation theory, authentic assessment, the meaning of active citizenship, interdisciplinary units, and cooperative learning. It can also be effective in influencing preservice teachers’ awareness of multicultural issues, individual differences, and the realities of issues of educational reform and collaboration." 1

"A frequently cited and used resource is the American Association of Higher Education (AAHE) monograph series on service-learning in the academic disciplines published between 1997 and 2005. The series was edited by Edward Zlotkowski, with each of the twenty-one volumes edited by specialists in the represented disciplines. This series is now published by Stylus Publishing, LLC.
The Service-Learning in the Disciplines series provides a collection of exemplary practices of service-learning in specific disciplines, such as history, Spanish, biology, etc, which serve as a guide for faculty within a discipline or field. The discussions presented in the series are written by scholars in the discipline and are supported by research, course models, annotated bibliographies and program descriptions. Each volume includes both theoretical and pedagogical essays and cover a wide range of interests and approaches."
