"Service-learning and Writing: Paving the Way for Literacy(ies) through Community Engagement" discusses service-learning as a teaching and learning method and its integration with writing. The various authors, from different disciplines and institutions, present service-learning as a means of having students practice writing in real world settings, and they show how relationship-building and partnerships between higher education and diverse communities produce benefits for all involved - the students, faculty, administrators, and the communities themselves. This volume demonstrates how writing instruction and/or writing practice can complement community engagement and outreach at local, national, and international contexts. Through different cross-cultural contexts and academic disciplines, the various authors explore reflection, assessment, internalization, diversity, and multiple literacies and their importance when integrating service-learning in higher education and community literacy. Through case studies, theory, and practice, the authors, both in and outside the United States, prove that service-learning can be implemented across institutions, academic disciplines and courses, countries, and cultures. Higher-education faculty and administration, college students, non-profit organizations, program directors, and community literacy instructors will be able to see how service-learning provides opportunities for partnerships, quality education, and community engagement. Service-learning is a venue that allows students and community members to ractice and improve their literacy skills while meeting some of their communities' needs.
