Service-learning is often used as an instructional strategy in social 
studies methods courses at the university level.  Teacher candidates 
engage in service-learning projects through community organizations 
working with children and families.  In our program, teacher candidates 
engage in service-learning projects with the children in their field 
placement classroom as the teacher who facilitates learning.  This 
article details our attempts to foster an experience that engages 
teacher candidates in bridging theory with practice in service-learning.
