Although more and more classrooms are integrating service-learning components into their curriculum, teachers and students often lack the unique pedagogical resources or frameworks for community-based learning that these courses demand.
Erin Brigham’s See, Judge, Act: Catholic Social Teaching and Service Learning, Revised Edition updates a proven text that delivers the tools needed for reflective community engagement. Designed for readers with little to no theology background, See, Judge, Act introduces the seven principles of Catholic social teaching and guides students and teachers alike to apply them to contemporary social issues. With reflection questions, sidebars, service-learning vignettes, and recommended resources, See, Judge, Act invites and empowers students to participate in works of justice and social change.
