Reflection is an essential part of service-learning as it encourages students to make meaningful connections between their service-learning experiences and their classroom content, thereby enhancing learning. Reflection helps students develop critical thinking skills, articulate their intellectual and emotional development, enhance their personal relevance in their service, and develop a greater civic capacity. For ideas of how to incorporate reflection in your class download the Center for Experiential Education's Service-Learning Reflection Resources handout for faculty.
