This Session We ask that… You listen to each other & respect each others views Participate in group discussions & activities Consider the possibilities being explored Keep on task so we can make the most of the time we have together
Research Deep knowledge Students need to engage in real world issues, questions and concerns that focus on key concepts to ensure that their knowledge is deep. Deep understanding Students demonstrate their deep understanding of ideas and concerns surrounding the service- learning issue in number of ways, including solving problems, giving explanations and drawing conclusions.
Problematic Knowledge Students consider the issues from multiple perspectives, recognizing alternative possibilities and considering a range of options for their project / task. Higher Order Thinking Service-learning tasks require students to use higher order thinking skills to organise, recognise, apply, analyse, synthesise and evaluate knowledge and information about the issue at hand.
Action Where ever possible this component should provide a series of ‘first hand’ experiences for students with a particular focus on students analysing their gifts and talents and connecting this with diverse needs (that are both near and far- home, school, local, national and global).
Advocacy This component focuses on an explicit teaching of the meaning of advocacy and its different forms and forums. eg. consult with the local community vote to clean up part of the community observe, take inventory analyse what they found; hypothesise share the results and offering suggestions.
Reflection Reflection is used as a powerful tool as it connects all the components together and aims to engage students to answer questions such as ‘What are the issues?’ ‘What is my role within the world?’ ‘What does the bible say about justice? What does this mean for me?’etc
Effective reflection is: Continuous – before, during and after the learning. Connected – to specific learning objectives. Cognitively challenging – demanding problem- solving, decision-making Contextualised – appropriate to the subject and student. Varied – multiple forms of reflection – written and oral.
