Weekly Project Journal
Each week of the project, student must submit a project journal entry. The journal entry consists of three parts:
1. Description. What happened in your project this week? What did you do? Experience?
Essentially, I did the same thing I always did: go to site, sign in clients, and organize files when there are lulls or low points; what I do more of really depends on the day and the weather. Typically, the most clients come towards the beginning/middle of the month - weather dependent. Since about ¾ of the clients are senior citizens, they will not drive in bad weather. So Wednesday, for example, was super busy - and Thursday (because it had snowed the night before and roads weren't the best) it was incredibly slow (I actually left 30 minutes early because no one was coming).
However, with all these lulls, I was able to finish cleaning out the files! Yeah!
I did, however, spend a substantial amount of time this week preparing outlines for the chapters.
2. Interpretation. What did you learn from your project this week? About the project? About the issue? About yourself?
I really didn't learn that much from site this week. Like I said, it was rather slow. It's always interesting to watch the different people, with their different backgrounds and different attitudes, but I didn't observe anything new this week that I haven't already written about.
Learned information regarding my project in doing comprehensive outlines - how I want to lay final chapters out and the main points I want to get across.
3. Evaluation. How would you evaluate your work on the project this week? What grade would you give yourself? Are you accomplishing the objectives of the project? Your personal objectives?
I would give myself an A. I went on-site and also did the reached my goal in completing detailed outlines for chapters 3-6 - thereby accomplishing objectives of project and personal.
