    9. 9. ReflectionsWe do not learn from our experience, we learn from processing our experience John Dewey thinking about your experiences foster your understanding of yourself and the world around you Aim for higher-order thinking (choose, criticize, defend, estimate, evaluate, judge, recommend rather than define, identify, label, list, name, what, when, who) Ongoing – before starting, during and after finishing a project / activity More scope in service activities
    10. 10. Reflections Many ways to reflect – Written (may be point form, Twitter style comments) Oral (During interviews with your activity supervisor; Record your own podcast and upload in Managebac) Visual (Murals, Collage) A comic strip A drama performance Poetry A letter to the editor / an editorial A word cloud (wordle) A video / short film
    11. 11. Reflections Piano Lessons its really frustrating when even after many practices i still cant play a piece well enough or even smoothly enough, i feel like even though i practice a lot i still cant play the piece right. But everyone interprets music differently, i feel that its unfair how only one person judges my piece and can consider it good or bad; what if i think that my pieces are good but he/she thinks its bad or vice versa? who has the right to judge my piece really?
    12. 12. Reflections Basketball Team one of the most difficult aspects of joining the basketball team is probably commitment, i think the people who are most important in making a successful basketball team are the committed members; the team would be nothing without the people who devote their time to continue to improve their skills and work with the others to make a good team. People can slack off and not go to practices but then they wont have as much game time as the others who do come to practice. I think this is quite fair.
    13. 13. Reflections Habitat For HumanityI think this was the first time I really helped outpeople who needed help; not just meaninglesstasks but actually helping people in property getsomething that I usually take for granted like ahouse. I never had to deal with not having ahouse so when I imagine how happy thesepeople would be to get a house they can live in, itmakes me feel really good about myself. Eventhough the planning stages were quote boringand some parts of the building were repetitive, Ithought it was all worth it to do something nice tosomeone and be able to really help them.
    14. 14. Reflections Imagine you visited the cage home venueWhat? Gut? So What? Now what?What? What happened? What do you recall most? What images are still in your mind? Objectively report the event.Gut? What is your gut feeling about what you saw/smelt/heard? What did you think about the people you saw / met? Was there anything you didnt feel good about? Why?So What? What is the problem? What are the consequences? What is important about what you have learned? What do you understand differently?Now What? What does this make you want to do? Has this experience changed you? Will you act differently as a result of this activity?
