CHAPTER 4 Discussion My event did not have a very large turnout – only two of the five sign-ups came both days – but that did not lessen the effectiveness of my service. In fact, I think it may have enhanced my service for the two participants because I was able to focus all of my attention on the two of them. My participants were two Caucasian females, who were also cousins, ages eight and fifteen. Although there was a bit of an age difference as well as a difference in terms of experience level between the two girls, it worked out well. Because they are family both were very patient if I was focusing more for a few minutes on one rather than the other. This was particularly the case with the fifteen year old; she was able to learn the choreography much quicker than her younger cousin but was very understanding, patient, and helpful when I worked more extensively and longer with her young cousin. I believe the fact that they were family and knew each other well greatly contributed to how smoothly our two classes went. Another positive asset that came from the fact that they were family that I did not expect was that the older cousin helped to encourage and push the younger girl to try harder and to put more effort into the movements when she got tired. This was extremely valuable because as a small eight- year-old, it was much more difficult to keep her motivated to continue with the warm-up or with learning new steps.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
