Recognizing that teaching, in general, and service- learning, in particular, are inherently political, this book faces up to the resulting predicaments that inevitably arise in the classroom. By framing them as a vital and productive part of the process of teaching and learning for political engagement, this book offers the reader new ways to think about and address seemingly intractable ideological issues. Using real incidents, the contributors explore the democratic intersections of various political beliefs along with race/ethnicity, class, gender, ability, sexual orientation, and other conflicted issues that students and faculty experience in the classroom and community. They share their struggles of how to communicate and interact across the divide of viewpoints and experiences within an egalitarian and inclusive environment, all the while managing interpersonal tensions and conflicts among diverse people in complex, value-laden situations.
