Literature: Resistance and Renewal
Jaune Quick-To-See Smith (Salish)
"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.
