Summary:
Community service-learning engages all four elements of learning - experience, reflection, conceptualization and testing. That's also what makes CSL so exciting for so many students: it calls on all their methods of learning, speaks to every dimension of their being, and draws them deeply into the "spiral of learning" that characterizes a fully-consummated learning experience.

Abstract:

Community service-learning engages all four elements of learning - experience, reflection, conceptualization and testing. That's also what makes CSL so exciting for so many students: it calls on all their methods of learning, speaks to every dimension of their being, and draws them deeply into the "spiral of learning" that characterizes a fully-consummated learning experience.
