Many of the readings, description/directions for student writing, and classroom activities are in Blackboard for this class. Service Learning: Service learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. All students will complete a shortterm experience and a semesterlong experience. Shortterm Service Learning: The shortterm service learning experience will be a Covington Bicentennial Service Day lasting approximately 5 hours. Students will complete the following tasks that will help them to design and implement the service day: 1.

Collaboratively develop a Bicentennial Project Proposal 5. Design and implement an advocacy strategy campaign (advocate at the Legislative Cuacus Meeting) 6. Execute the project Semesterlong Service Learning: The semesterlong service learning experience requires at least 25 hours of meaningful community service (23 hours per week). Students will serve with a community partner accomplishing projects relevant to the student’s semesterlong service learning objectives. Students will complete the following tasks in order to complete the service learning requirements for the course: 1. Confirm your service learning 2. Complete Blackboard modules 3. Complete an inclass presentation 4. Attend guided reflection 5. Turn in an hours log 6. Complete a final evaluation Participation: Active participation in class in required. This includes reading for class, completing your homework, contributing to class discussion, behaving with professionalism, and staying on task. It is the student’s responsibility to ask questions and listen attentively. Participation will be assessed each class. Your participation is worth 9% of your final grade and will be evaluated first by the student, and then confirmed by the instructor. Book Blackboard entries: For almost each class you will be required to complete a required reading prior to coming to class. Each reading has a corresponding Blackboard entry for you to complete. Late Blackboard entries will not be accepted for credit. “I didn’t know we had an entry due” is not an excuse. Please refer to your syllabus throughout the semester so you are aware of your reading and Blackboard entry due dates. There are 16 book Blackboard entries total, representing 22.5% of your final grade. Essays (Needs and Assets Assignment, SWOT Analysis, Bicentennial Project Proposal): Essays and papers must be typed in MLA style, 12point font, doublespaced, with 1.00 or 1.25 inch margins, and printed on 8½ x 11 inch paper, in Times New Roman. Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated. Again, late essays and papers will not be accepted for credit. It is strongly recommended that you edit your essays and papers at the Center for Academic Success prior to turning them in. Contact the Center at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each assignment is worth 8% of your final grade. Blackboard Modules: Students are asked to complete Module activities and journal discussions while completing their semesterlong service learning experience. Late Blackboard entries will not be accepted for credit. “I didn’t know we had an entry due” is not an excuse. Please refer to your syllabus 4 throughout the semester so you are aware of your reading and Blackboard entry due dates. There are 7 Blackboard critical reflections total, representing 24.5% of your final grade. Book Guided Reflections: You will be asked to complete four chapter guided reflections throughout the semester. Presentations should be delivered using Microsoft PowerPoint. Your slides should not be filled with words, and you should NOT read off your slides. Please consider using relevant images on your slides, accompanied by notecards to help guide the discussion. Each chapter guided reflection is worth 3% of your final grade. Guided Reflection: All students are expected to attend guided reflection on exam day. Guided reflection is an opportunity for students to compare and contrast their service learning experiences, share their learnings, discuss the values that they have strengthened through their service experience, and brainstorm ways to live out those values in the future for a more inclusive community. Guided reflection is worth 5% of your final grade.
