students will bring a 1-2 page self reflection
Self reflections should be a critical analysis of the readings for the two week period including the week of
the self reflection. They should include the following:
Self reflection on at least two (2) concepts learned in the course so far and a clear explanation of their
application to the readings for this two week period (I statements are essential).
This reflection should indicate an understanding of the concepts (not just a definition) and how they are
identified in the reading.
-State the concept(s)
-Explain how the concept is exemplified in the reading by using examples, direct quotes.
-Self-reflection on how these concepts impact on your life
Do not tell us whether you did or did not like the reading (this is not a Yelp review). Also unsupported
opinions that are critical of the material will lose you points. Back up your opinions with facts and
references from academic sources. Inclusion of current events is encouraged. All comments and reflections
must meet the basic requirements for civil discourse (these will be discussed in lecture)
