Throughout the semester we will:
Develop a literary and historical understanding of literature,
cultivate an appreciation for literature,
understand how history and literature impact present-day culture, become more attentive readers,
ask questions of texts, and sharpen critical thinking skills.
By engaging in service learning, students will:
gain learning experiences outside of the classroom, improve interpersonal skills, increase understanding of other cultures,
apply literature and course content to community-related work, contribute to the community through student service, and, ultimately, develop a sense of civic responsibility.
Does Service learning really help?
