Closing Reflection

(15-20 minutes)

 

Loop back to the broad questions that you and your students explored in this module as a way of reviewing what you covered related to civic voice:

  • Question #1: How do I find my story and express it in ways that are civically meaningful?

  • Question #2: What do I choose to share publicly and what do I keep to myself?

  • Question #3: As I Express Myself, How Will My Message Spread?

  • Question #4: How do I manage the ‘digital afterlife’ of my voice?

 

Ask students to reflect on what they learned by answering the following questions:

CONNECT:

How are the ideas and information presented CONNECTED to what you already knew?

 

EXTEND:

What new ideas did you get that EXTENDED or pushed your thinking in new directions?

 

CHALLENGE:

What is still CHALLENGING or confusing for you to get your mind around? What questions, wonderings or puzzles do you now have?

 

You can then ask students share with a partner. Once they are done, you can ask for a few volunteers to share with the larger group. In particular, you may want to surface what challenges or confusions students still have around these topics.
