Cinnaminson High School (Cinnaminson, N.J.); Service learning
This study was done to determine the effect of service-learning on the students of Cinnaminson High School. This was the first phase of a long-range project that would lead to every Cinnaminson High School student being introduced to service-learning, during his or her high school career.
The study was conducted with a limited student population that included students in the Advanced Placement United States History II classes. These were homogeneous classes of about fifty-one students who were given the option of creating a service-learning project. They were required to produce a portfolio on their experience.
Data was collected through the use of a student survey that determined how students felt about community service and citizenship before and after their service-learning experience. Data was also collected by interviewing the teacher of the class. Data was used from the student portfolios, which included a journal in which students reflected on their experiences.
