CBL Online Reading Group Reads Service Learning as a Pedagogy of Whiteness (March 10-17)

Tania Original Fix-02 vertical headshotFor March’s discussion group, we are diving into Service Learning as a Pedagogy of Whiteness by Dr. Tania Mitchell and colleagues. It is a longer read than previous months but builds nicely from where we left off with the last article considering student identity and service and will get us all familiar with some of Dr. Mitchell’s scholarship before her visit here on May 16-17.
Please join in a discussion about this article, about PSU’s twenty years and counting with engagement, and what the future holds. This is part of a monthly series of discussions exploring diverse perspectives on the subject of community-based learning engagement.

  1. This is an important article. For about 15 years now, I’ve been using a plethora of articles on whiteness. That still does not make it easier to teach service learning courses within the academy. However, we need to continue the discussion.

    I look forward to this speaker.

  2. Hi Friends! Here is my reading list recommendations:
