Psychology & Sociology Response Form

Please respond to each item below using proper writing conventions such as grammar, spelling and punctuation. The responses should be insightful and integrate your understanding of course content and/or skills gained and the relationship to real-world situations. Overall grade is based on the ability to make these connections, therefore it is recommended that time is spent reviewing concepts and skills gained from the course before submitting the response form.

Failure to turn in both the reflective response form and the log sheet of service hours by the deadline will result in a zero grade for the service-learning requirement of the course.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the Director of Service Learning for an appointment:

Reflecting on the various definitions, including your own, answer the following: Do you feel that membership (citizenship) in a community necessarily includes an obligation to serve others through volunteer work? If so, why is service a necessary aspect of citizenship, and how much service is appropriately expected of community members? If not, why is service not a necessary component of membership (citizenship) in a community?

Discuss how this service might relate to your major. Consider the following: Does the organization or the service you provided directly or indirectly relate to your field of study? Did you gain any transferable skills you could take with you into the work place or your field of study? Were you able to apply any knowledge from your field of study to the service you provided?

Describe the connections found between the concepts and/or skills gained in the Psychology or Sociology course and the service experience. Consider the following: Psychology is the study of behavior as it applies to daily living – basic theories, biological bases of behavior, development, cognitive process, individual awareness, motivation, emotion, etc. Sociology is the study of human social activity – processes and patterns of interaction, relationships between groups, group influences on individual behavior. What have you learned about these concepts in your classes and can you relate any of the above concepts to your service experience?
  For example: If you are working with children, look at ways in which they learn and compare this to the concepts of cognitive processes or development discussed in Psychology class.
For example: If working with a group of individuals, consider the concepts of relationships from Sociology. Compare that to how those in the group relate to each other or how they relate to you as a volunteer versus to how they might relate to someone else within the organization.
