Beginning a service learning project

One of my coworkers and I met on Friday to discuss bringing service learning into our program.  We want to start small and see where things go.  Our plan for now is to do a one-time, holiday-themed project with our students.  We’re planning to collect coats and other winter outerwear to donate in the weeks before Christmas.  My writing students are going to put together a flier for the project, her grammar students are going to edit the flier, and we’re going to set up a booth on campus to promote our project.

We hope to expand this next session into a bigger, longer project with more classes involved.  We’re presenting the idea to our faculty tomorrow – I hope everyone else is as enthusiastic as we are about this.
