READING

With our continued emphasis on social justice for the winter term symposium, faculty may be interested in reading Service Learning and Social Justice:  Engaging Students in Social Change by Susan Cipolle.  Her "Stages of Critical Consciousness Development"  may provide us with a framework for what we are hoping to accomplish, and her focus on service learning offers a pedagogy for doing so.  Faculty interested in receiving a copy of the book and participating in a discussion of it sometime next fall should contact Ellen Hay.  Books will be ordered in early May.
