Using a multidisciplinary approach to service learning in elder care, Seperson and Hegeman assist students in their actual experience with clients. With this text in hand, a professor can offer students an overview of all aspects of aging, community service, and social policy without putting 40 different articles on reserve. Part I describes the diverse service-learning experience. Part II provides basic information on aging from demographic, biological, physiological, and psychosocial perspectives. Part III describes a service learning classroom and the many tools a student and a professor can use to maximize the learning in this special kind of class. Part IV is devoted to communication. Here, interviewing, surveying, and oral history skills are defined. Part V helps the student prepare for the unexpected-what to do when one is actually in a service learning experience with an elder or a group of elders. Part VI is devoted to elder-care policy. Students and their professors will gain a perspective on how to think about and debate issues about aging. Part VII is devoted to case studies of very different service-learning experiences. Following are four comprehensive appendixes, including annotated bibliographies for further reading about service-learning and aging, a code of ethics, and a service learning elder-care manual for implementation of a program.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A thoughtful guide for students and teachers who are contemplating on participating in service learning experiences with the elderly."-Sheldon Tobin Professor Emeritus University at Albany, SUNY
"This is a comprehensive book that covers the field from every dimension: knowledge, skills, sensitivities, policy, history, and pedagogy. There are examples and illustrations to inspire and encourage students and instructors to embrace this innovative pedagogy. No one will be afraid to break new ground since careful reading anticipates most basic concerns. The book is inspirational and instructional in showing how learning, teaching, and service can work together on behalf of the elderly. What a wonderful way to learn!"-Paul Roodin Director, Experienced Based Education and Professor of Psychology SUNY College at Oswego
