250- to 500-word proposals, with title, for 15-minute papers/presentations on the pedagogical use of service learning in composition or literature courses.  Papers should address issues like the following:  Determining whether service learning projects—and what kinds—are appropriate to course material; matching key components of one’s English course with appropriate service learning projects; establishing relations with off-campus service learning entities; framing project assignments that enhance service learning while maintaining course content integrity; developing an assessment model to measure outcomes.  How many different service learning projects within an English course?  How long should such projects be?  Level of difficulty?  Challenges, risks, rewards?  How have service learning initiatives evolved in the last several years?  Given such prompts as these to guide the formation of your paper, the presentation should be integrated with relevant service learning research to support experimental models and conclusions.
