Analyze actions taken, projects impact, what worked, what didnt, contribution of the work Use a variety of techniques: group discussion,
journaling, art projects, public discussion Reflection Questions What? What did we do? What did we see, touch, smell? What did we experience? How did I feel about the experience? What did I learn that I didnt know before? So what? How do I interpret what I experienced? What did the experience mean to me? What did I learn about myself, my community, my world? What life skills did I learn? Now what? What will we do to build on the experience? What will our next project be? How will I use the skills and
knowledge learned to continue to meet community needs? (Hairston and Jamison, 2009) Evaluate/Celebrate Evaluate Collect feedback Show others what was accomplished and learned Highlight the impact of the work Celebrate the work! Make service learning a part of every club meeting.
