reflecting a change reflection assignment

Reflect upon (think about) how you and your writing have changed as a result of this course. Change can be evidenced by personal growth or acquisition of new skills, among other things. You might begin reflection by attempting to generate a list of ten or more statements that you can make about the difference between you/your writing at the beginning of the course and the present.

Create your Portfolio

  • Give careful consideration to the choice of five primary sources of your own original writing after reading Chapter 24, pages 626-629.
  • Choose five pieces of writing (minimum) that you have completed for this course as primary sources for your reflection. They can include: 
    • Writing sample, assignment responses, discussion board responses, essays, etc.
  • These five pieces of writing will be submitted as your “portfolio” (either as attachments or pasted directly) to your wiki page for the Final Exam Wiki. 

Write your Reflection

  • Choose one statement that most clearly expresses the most significant change in you/your writing for your reflection.
  • Use journaling, looping, or questioning to aid you in your reflection and final analysis (pages 428-429).
  • Compose an approximately 1400-1600 word reflection on change. 
  • Include for your analysis/reflection the writing that you completed very early in the semester as well as your more recent pieces.
