      : Reflection questions based
      on Core Values


      Models for Discipleship: Invite students to research a “model of discipleship,” a person whose life is a witness to service. Students then reflect on their service experience in light of the qualities of the persons selected. The person selected should relate in some way with the service in which the student engaged.

      There are many helpful websites related to “Models of discipleship.” A few are listed below:


        Education for Justice (See especially the section on Saints and Heroes)
        Nobel Peace Prize Laureates
        Academy of Achievement


       Use of Film for Reflection: Select a clip from a film related to some aspect of the course or a person whose life is a model for service. Discuss the film in light of Neumann’s identity as a Catholic institution in the Franciscan tradition. Invite students to reflect on their service experience in light of the film. As an alternative, invite students to select a film clip which interprets some aspect of their experience and to write or present orally the connection with the service.
