This assignment is designed to help you critically reflect on the work you've been doing with your service-learning sites. In the comments section, please respond to the questions below. In addition, post one comment in response to another service-learning student's answers--that is, respond to their answers, perhaps noting if you had similar experiences, questions you have, etc. Your reflection is due by Tuesday, March 29. Your response to the other student is due by Friday, April 1.
A few sentences for each questions is plenty!
1. What kind of work have you been doing as a volunteer at your site? Describe a typical day.
2. How does that work benefit the organization? How does this work benefit yourself?
3. In what ways have you seen the connections between public speaking and your service project? This might include ways you've used your voice at the cite, how preparing your speech for class helped you better appreciate your organization, or how the organization relies on public speaking to further their cause (or anything else you might observe).
4. What has been the best thing about service-learning so far? The worst? The biggest obstacle? How do you plan to overcome that obstacle during the last part of the semester?
