What Every ESL Teacher Needs to Know
Trisha Dowling and James M. Perren


Service-Learning: What Every ESL Teacher Needs to Know gives practical information on implementing service-learning in the field of TESOL. Service-learning⁠—"the accomplishment of tasks that meet genuine human needs in combination with conscious educational growth"⁠—has developed into a pedagogical approach that incorporates student learning and reflection with curricular concepts while partnering with community organizations. Following an overview of service-learning in the field of TESOL, this text includes sections on incorporating service-learning in an ESL course, finding appropriate community partnerships, making decisions about culture- and language-based lessons, assessing students, and making the experience meaningful. Also included are four specific strategies to help readers make the case for service-learning to administrators.
