The second journal, the International Service-Learning Reflection Journal, is specifically created for international study abroad courses. It provides pre-entry assignments and re-entry assignments to help with the reflective process. The journal also has a quantitative assessment for the beginning and end of the project.
Reflection in the classroom is an important teaching tool for critical thinking. Students have the opportunity to enhance their learning experience by answering prompted questions that stimulate thoughts and ideas.
