What is a Service Learning Reflection?
The student has 3 options for their reflection and/or the instructor may assign one specific option. (There is also an attached reflection assignment overview handout that instructors may use) Reflection Assignment.docx
OPTION 1- Written
Include a Title page in APA format plus 2 pages of writing:
1. Introduce and describe your service learning site in detail. Who does this organization serve? What role do they play in the lives of children/families? What issue is being addressed? Why is their work important? (do not use “I” in this first paragraph.)
- Summarize your experience from day one and until your last day. What roles did you play? What was you most memorable experience while volunteering?
- How did you apply what you were learning in class to your service learning experience? Try to give examples that relate and connect to specific content you’ve learned in your EMCC course.
- What did you learned from the other staff/volunteers? What have you learned from the children/families? Who made the greatest impression on you? What did you gain through this experience? What did the organization, staff, or children/families gain from having you as a volunteer?
- Include any final thoughts. What are your final impressions of the organization? What did you like best or dislike most about this experience? Do you feel SL was a valuable experience? Why or why not?
OPTION 2- Presentation

- Must include graphics/pictures and have solid text/graphic balance
- Max of 20 slides
OPTION 3- Create a movie
- Create a video using Movie Maker, YouTube, or video media answering questions 1-5 from Option 1
- This should NOT be simply a video of you speaking to the camera but rather should be more of an informational video.
