CONTEMPLATION

to deliberate consciously about the challenges, needs, and expectations of the service experience

  • prior to each session
  • structured opportunities
  • objectives and questions
forming public judgment
Forming Public Judgment

Brainstorm issues at your school or in the wider local area that are currently in the news or being debated. Which of these issues do you need to learn more about? Make a plan for how you can become more informed on this issue so that you might reach a positive public judgment. Follow through with the plan and begin a course of action based on your judgment. Document this entire process and share it with at least three other people.

ACTION

the on-site work undertaken with community partners in order to meet learning and serving objectives

  • physical labor
  • intellectual skills

REFLECTION

the lens through which you think critically about the experience, deeply considering how the action intentionally links to specific learning goals

  • physical situation
  • intellectual stretching
  • social/emotional dimensions
creative non fiction a day in the life
Creative Non-Fiction:A Day in the Life…

Think back over your entire service-learning experience. Select one day around which you may shape a creative non-fiction short story. Perhaps reviewing your journal entries may help you make your selection. Recall the literary elements that are present in all well constructed stories.

  • characters
  • point of view
  • setting
  • plot/conflict
  • theme
  • audience
slide11

COMMITMENT

a disciplined effort to act upon your belief in the communal necessity of service and in the benefits it affords all involved

  • moving to a deeper level
  • additional investigation
  • planning for future service
creating a personal manifesto
Creating a Personal Manifesto

Identify some social aspect that deeply concerns you because of a value you hold dearly. What do you think are the underlying issues surrounding the problem? What life skills do you need to develop to address these issues? How will these skills translate into concrete action? Use the graphic organizer to critically think through the issue(s) and your response.
