Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This volume is a practical, topical book for service-learning and language educators in applied linguistics and related disciplines such as English, foreign language education, hearing and speech sciences, and TESOL. While introducing readers to up-to-date and unique approaches to and research on first- and second-language acquisition, language policy and planning, language testing and methodology, assessment, bilingualism, and interlanguages, this book also raises questions central to many undergraduate and graduate courses with social justice themes by addressing educational, linguistic, and human rights issues.

The projects and methods described here emphasize the importance of second language proficiency for establishing and sustaining academic community partnerships in today's multilingual and multicultural societies. Moreover, the authors make a convincing case for promoting and preparing learners for educated and engaged citizenship in both local and global arenas.

This book is divided into four parts:

  • Theoretical framework for developing service-learning projects in applied linguistics
  • Domestic service-learning efforts
  • International service-learning efforts
  • Service-learning research reports representing Spanish, TESOL teacher education, and composition studies
