Service Learning (first semester) Ingrid Ramos Working alongside Ms. Tench this semester was a great learning experience because during my time with her I was able to grasp a basic understanding of the proper ways of dealing with younger aged children. I was able to see and hear what the students and the teacher thought about a certain situation and what the best resolution was in order for both of the individuals to be content. These skills helped me perform better in my job and I am now able to handle situations better. Because of this I now love going downstairs. I enjoy that I can help those who are struggling and that I can be there for them when they need me. But not only that thanks to this class I was able to find an outlet where

I learned a lot about myself as a teacher and how to help these students individually without neglecting the rest of the class while tending to their needs. It wasn't difficult for me to walk by Kiden's desk and praise her for what she was doing, or give her praise during whole group interaction. However, this meat the world to her and boosted her self confidence in the skill and concepts that were being taught. In the same way I was able to help Kiden, I was also able to help Pau and Georgia with the things they needed such as reading the instructions to them one-on-one or checking in on them throughout the assessment just to make sure they were on the right track.
Honestly I like writing and reading and hearing people’s take on a text. This class, which was filled with all of that, however I did not like and my attitude clearly reflected that. Every student learns differently and personally no matter how much I favor the subject, I vibe off of my environment. My table mates. The life of the class.
I’m choosing the Service Learning Project and how it connects to the three articles. The Service Learning Project is going to talk to students are education and how its important for their future. In William Cronon’s Only Connect article is about freedom and growth in educations, and how students should have different opportunities and that they should have a say in what classes they take. Also why its important to have an education. This connects with the project that in my Service Learning Project I’m going to be talking to students about the importance of educations and how it should be your choice.
I have always enjoyed teaching people and helping them learn so that they can succeed in school. I got involved with tutoring through National Honor Society and the A+ Scholarship Program. With National Honor Society there is many service opportunities that I am able to be involved in and I do as many as possible, but tutoring homebound has always been what I've prefered to do. This is very important to me because many of these students aren't in class to learn directly from a teacher so things can become confusing fairly quickly and I like to be there to help as much as I am able to. Even at times when it is something that I am not proficient in it becomes a learning experience for me as well as the student I am tutoring.
My most significant academic learning experience has been…
This program has given me the skills I need to adapt to new problems that I would not have anticipated the day before and to have a strong work ethic. Through this group project and the numerous assignments I've had throughout college, I've improved my time-management abilities and learned how to set priorities more effectively. Not only from the coursework but also from the connections to Christ made in
I just wanted to say I think I 'm going to go with the service learning track because I learn more so by hands on activities and I 'm not always very sociable so I think it would shift my perspective to be learning in a position that I 'm not normally used to now that said I don 't plan to use this learning track as some weird way to become an extrovert the fact is I 'm more of an introvert and I am who I am and I don 't plan to change that and I don 't think I could anyways I think the service learning track would be a better way (for me at least) to learn sociology through experience that is
I learned how to approach various people I could encounter in my desired career path, physical therapy. With intelligent professionals, such as doctors and nurses, I gained knowledge on how to formally communicate with them and follow the tasks I am given. Regarding the patients of the hospital and their families, I learned how to show compassion and generosity towards strangers that have been stricken by misfortune. An important life lesson that I have acquired throughout the year is that when being involved with volunteer and leadership experience, the greatest reward is not being paid in money or recognition, but being paid in love. The people you provide service to may forget what you said and did, however, they will never forget how it made them
I had the opportunity to spend my service learning hours with an amazing young lady by the name of Paige. Paige is 25 years old and has a twin brother and a younger brother who she recently lost to suicide. It affected her deeply and she now battles depression. Paige was born premature, 3 months before her due date and weighed in at a whopping .??ounces. From the gate Paige had complications and had open heart surgery at ?
For once in my life I felt pride because of who I was, and craved to know more, learn more. You see before this class I had thought that I was evading this destiny of failure with all of my efforts, running from those who hated me because of how I was
I never would have thought that I could teach another student their homework let alone help them understand it. I felt incredibly good after I knew that I had the chance to help multiple students not only with their homework but, help them make the right decisions when stuck in a predicament. It was an amazing feeling telling students how I achieved my goals and the process it took to achieve them while being at the University. The feeling you get when a person when someone looks up to you and they tell you gives you a feeling that is indescribable.
When going into the service learning project I did not know what to expect. I knew I would have to find the perfect way to communicate with other to get the best information possible. Asking questions about the process of choosing an EMR and problems that they had in the transition process was one of the topics I decided to further pursue. I was eager to learn how the clinic dealt with change and how it affected the environment of the clinic. I needed to ask different people in the clinic because though they used the same system, they each use a different part of the EMR, each for different reasons and for their particular job.
Through the readings of the last week, I have learned a great deal about ‘Service Learning’. It is a combination of teaching and learning approach for teaching public health issues and improving health literacy. It is an integration of academic learning and community services to strengthen civic engagement. It is helpful in promoting cooperation, teamwork, civic responsibility, solving complex problems etc. (Service learning, 2016).
Through this service learning experience, I have learned a lot about developing children and how to apply my learning from N1I02 and N1J02 in terms of developmental considerations to help develop trust with my students and build relationships. The skill that I feel was developed the most through this placement was communication. I have always been above average with my communication skills, however, that was with people my own age, or with people who were older than me. I have not had as much experience communicating with people who are significantly younger than I am. It requires a different approach, and the ability to develop trust with the person before you can communicate effectively with them.
