Thomas Deans, one of the leading scholars in the field of service-learning, points to three ways to engage in service-learning: writing about the community, writing for the community, and writing with the community. The approach I prefer to use is writing with the community. Any community partner I engage with to work with my students understands that the needs of the students come first. These activities are meant to provide a learning environment for the students, and the community partners act as mentors in the learning process. The service-learning engagement is never set up to require that a student is responsible for producing some type of deliverable to the community partner. It is often the case, however, that community partners do benefit, and on occasion, come away from the partnership with a finished product they can put right to use.
