Community schools, colleges, universities, and faith communities promote the concept of service while learning. Opportunities for local and national service abound. This manuscript describes a successful partnership between faculty of an urban public school and undergraduate education majors completed during the spring of 2003. "Principles of good practice" were incorporated into a service-learning project aimed at teaching elementary students about personal health. Classroom teachers and university faculty rated content and methods of instruction and provided feedback to candidates.
