Evaluate and Reflect

Step 7: Evaluate and Reflect

Once the project is completed, it’s time to help students reflect on the process and outcomes. What did they learn about teamwork, collaboration and leadership? What new insights do they have about civics, government and the individual’s role in the community? How might they do things differently next time? Does their project have a single culminating event (like a mural) or does it warrant their continued involvement (such as an annual river cleanup)? How can the group maintain the partnerships they have established and check on future results from their efforts?

To facilitate evaluation and reflection, you may consider the following activities:

  • A group discussion
  • Peer evaluations
  • Self-evaluation
  • One-on-one conversations
  • Journaling
  • A rubric developed jointly with students at the beginning of the project
  • Video reflections
  • Blogging
  • A checklist developed jointly with students at the beginning of the project

If you need more information on the process of evaluation and reflection, review the pages on Reflection and Document and Evaluate the Learning from earlier in this section.
