*****You should complete a journal entry each time you work on your project.***** I would suggest creating a file using a Word document and editing it each time you work on your project. Completed journals will be uploaded to Canvas. The number of journal entries will vary by student, depending upon how you divide up the hours for your project. If you turn in a complete journal (i.e, all required information, accounting for all service hours) you will earn full credit. Incomplete journals will earn 0 points. Each journal entry must include the date and time logged. In addition, you will focus on three points: What? (Report the facts and events of an experience, objectively.) So What?(Analyze the experience. Use some of your sociological imagination and vocabulary here.) Now What?(Consider the future impact of the experience on you and the community.) Some questions to help you with the above…remember these are suggestions. You do not need to answer each of the questions each time you write a journal entry. What? What happened? What did you observe? What issue is being addressed? What population is being served? So What? Did you learn a new skill or clarify an interest? Did you hear, see, smell, or feel anything that surprised you? How is your experience different from what you expected? What impacts the way you view the situation/experience? What did you like/dislike about the experience? What did you learn about the people/community? What are some of the pressing needs/issues in the community? How does this project address those needs? Now What? What seem to be the root causes of the issue addressed? What other work is currently happening to address the issue? What learning occurred for you in this experience? How can you apply this learning? What would you like to learn more about, related to this project or issue? What follow-up is needed to address any challenges or difficulties? What information can you share with your peers or the community? If you could do the project again, what would you do differently?
