To prepare for this reflection, students are assigned to do background reading on the organization they will/wish to work with for the Service Learning component of the course. Students then are guided into a reflection with the following questions: Why should you know about the people or organization with whom you'll be working? Why do you think this partner was chosen? After reading about the partner organization, how would you like to contribute to their work, (what kind of support would you give and/or project would you do?) How does it your idea/project relate to the content of the course and the organization mission and goals? What are you hoping to learn from the collaboration/ project? What do you hope to have gained from this project and What do you think your service-learning partner hopes to have gained after completion of this project? The assignment also gives students practice in eliciting their own thoughts and reflections when approaching a new experience
