A major component that ties all the learning you have done through this course is your reflective essay. Please write a 3 – 5 page essay on your service learning experience. Try to keep these questions in mind when planning out your essay.
- Was this project what you had anticipated when you proposed it?
- What concepts and classroom knowledge were you able to apply during your project?
- Did you work alone on the project, or did you organize a small/large group to carry out the project? If you had others helping, how did you engage their help?
- Was the project something that fixed an existing problem? Or, was this a sustainable project? If it is something that will go on, what steps did you take to make sure this can be carried out by others?
- If you had the opportunity to do a service learning project again, would you do it?
- What did you learn from this project?
- Do you have suggestions on the course or lessons that you feel might improve the course?
Since this is an essay that will just be sent to me, and not shared via social media, if you would like to share any photos you took throughout the project to show the work you have done, please feel free to do so.
