10% of the Service-Learning grade is based upon a journal that the students will keep throughout the semester. This journal is intended as a place for students to reflect, question, and record their experiences. Students are free to use their journals as a space for whatever thoughts occur to them over the semester regarding their experiences with children at the Service-Learning site. The journal will be collected and read at the end of the semester, but will not receive a grade. Completion of a journal containing 10 entries with reasonable content of any length will result in a full credit for this portion of the grade.
The remaining 10% of the grade is based on a three page reflection paper, due December 9th, on the Service-Learning experience. This paper is a chance for students to review their journals, look back on their experiences, and reflect on what they have learned.
Some guiding question to think about while you write this paper are:
Summary of Requirements:
1. Participate in a minimum of 20 hours at one of four Service-Learning Sites.
2. Due December 9, 1999: A journal with a minimum of 10 entries, kept over the entire semester (not written the evening of December 8).
3. A 3-page reflection paper addressing some or all of the suggested questions above, and relating an issue from colloquium to their experience at a Service-Learning site.
