A reflection paper is not a recap of the class, lecture or the exercise. A proper reflection paper is a combination of your thoughts, analysis of what you have experienced. In doing so, please relate your reflections to class topics. A reflection paper demonstrates your understanding and interpretation of the experience/course material. Therefore, a reflection paper is a personal account and is less structured than a regular paper you write for other classes. Each journal entry should be minimum 500 words. Please include a word count.
