This essay focuses on a Service Learning project which a group of students from my Advanced Composition class at Old Dominion University participated in regarding sexual assault awareness on college campuses. Throughout our class, we learned what Service Learning projects consist of and used what we learned to form our own proposals for projects that would reach from the classroom to the surrounding area to address community issues. We have written about our experiences with this Service Learning project in a reflective essay which acts as our final exam. In doing this, we also have attained our course goals in selecting our audience and purpose, using critical thinking skills to apply to the subject of sexual assault awareness and evaluating our own text for effectiveness and credibility.
Key words: sexual assault awareness, Service Learning, interacting, students, critical thinking, feminist, patriarchal, framework
