    This project explores service learning as both instructional strategy and motivational tool for language teachers. A broad range of service learning projects are being investigated, with special emphasis on the author's recent attempts in a content-focused EFL program in Japan. An instructional design approach is being used to highlight each phase of the project, including assessment, design, development, implementation and evaluation. Attention is being focused on both theoretical underpinnings and practical guidelines for getting started with service-learning endeavors.
