Robert F. Kronick, Robert B. Cunningham, and Michele Gourley. Experiencing Service-Learning. Knoxville: U of Tennessee P, 2011. x, 173 p. ISBN 9781572337589. $19. One of the newest additions to the growing body of literature on service-learning, Experiencing Service-Learning seeks to define and illustrate this action-based pedagogy via the experiences of students and faculty from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. These experiences occur primarily in Knoxville within programs for at-risk and low-income elementary school children but also within a summer medical internship in Honduras. Disciplines directly represented in the chapters are counseling, medicine, and public administration, though the concepts covered are certainly transferable to other university disciplines.
