Wortham receives Maine Service-Learning Award

Stanton Wortham, assistant professor of education at Bates College, has been honored with the Maine Campus Compact’s Faculty Service-Learning Award. Wortham was recognized for designing several innovative service-learning projects, including a program in which Latino Bates students tutor and mentor Latino schoolchildren in S.A.D. 52 (Turner, Maine) schools.

“The review committee was impressed by both the breadth and depth of Dr. Wortham’s experience. He has done an excellent job of integrating service-learning into his classes, and has been a serious advocate for service-learning nationally and on his own campus,” said Liz McCabe Park, director of the Maine Campus Compact.

Wortham, who earned a bachelor’s degree from Swarthmore College and a doctoral degree from The University of Chicago, is the author of Acting Out Participant Examples in the Classroom, (Philadelphia: John Benjamins, 1994). Before joining the Bates faculty in 1993, he was a lecturer at The University of Chicago.
