Service learning opportunities are beneficial to teacher education students as well as the communities that they serve. At Regis University, Master of Education in Reading students are encouraged to exemplify Jesuit values through self-designed service learning projects in literacy, through which they identify and meet a specific need at their school related to reading and writing. The author describes a few examples of these projects, including comments from the students regarding how the projects have been transformative to their learning experience.
