The act of reflecting on an experience has been promoted as a key learning strategy for internship or service learning experiences.  Asking a student to keep a journal is a popular technique for stimulating the reflective process.  However, journals can turn into diaries – a list of “what I did today.”  Reflection Questions and Assignments provides specific reflection questions and assignments that can inspire deeper reflection and promote enhanced learning.  Not all of these ideas will work for all situations but they can be a starting point for other ideas.

Students:  Do you need help writing a reflection on a Service Learning experience? The Writing Center can help you at any stage, from brainstorming content to organizing to fine tuning word choices. Visit the Writing Center’s website at https://www.msudenver.edu/writectr/.
