A Visual Model for Critical Service-Learning Project Design

April 1, 2021


Drawing from Stith et al.’s (2018) Critical Service-Learning Conversations Tool, this article provides a visual model for developing critical service-learning projects. This model proposes to assist the analysis of critical service-learning projects by grounding them in contemporary scholarship and literature. The model also reveals the interplay of the five key themes in critical service-learning literature: understanding systems, authentic relationships, redistribution of power, equitable classrooms, and social change skills.
