A Research Based Unique Approach to Service Learning with Developmental Education Students
Tuesday, April 22, 2014 from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM (EDT)
Inspired by the work of DeLaune, Rakow, and Rakow (2010), we modified and replicated their study, engaging developmental students in a non-traditional service learning project on financial literacy. Students in a Student Success class received 2 hours of training on credit cards and the importance of having a good credit score and how to conduct an effective presentation. Groups of 3-4 students then led a 30 minute lesson on this topic in 5 other Student Success courses on our campus, reaching almost 100 at-risk students in developmental education. Extensive data on this project, including pre and post test results as well as focus group and interview data, will be shared. Presented by Christine Harrington, Jennifer Altman, and Patty McMahon.
