The question that animates volume, 16th in the Service-Learning in the Disciplines Series, is: Why connect service-learning to history courses? The contributors answer that question in different ways and illustrate and highlight a diversity of historical approaches and interpretations. All agree, however, that they do their jobs better as teachers (and in some cases as researchers) by engaging their students in service-learning. An interesting read with a compelling case for the importance of history and how service-learning can improve the historian’s craft.
