Reflection Journal

you will reflect on the main points “highlights” of the readings and the activities. Ask yourself: “What have I learned in this unit?” “Why is this important?”, “What does this new knowledge mean to me?”, “How will this knowledge help me in future?” “Why are these concepts important?” You may wish to discuss your answers to these questions online with others in your class before writing your reflection. Set 3 is very similar but is required to be a little longer as it covers an additional unit. Set 3 should consist of 5-6 pages. Every reflection set should contain a citations and reference page following the style of the American Psychological Association (APA) style 6th edition. The library quiz will give you some guidance about APA style and some of the basics.  For Set 3, you will include at least 3 references from Units 6-8 and at least 2 additional references that are not included in the course. One of the additional references MUST be an academic article but the other(s) may be from any other resource. Remember this is a reflection rather than a simple summary so ensure that your writing demonstrates how this unit is applicable to your life. Do not be afraid to offer critique where applicable. You should avoid the presentation of quotes from the reading material unless absolutely critical to illustrate a particular point. This should not be a copy of the text, but rather your personal account of the theoretical material as it relates to your own context. You are not limited to reflecting on the course material alone and are encouraged to include material beyond the course readings and activities. Events from your own experience and insights gained from discussion forum conversations are also encouraged.
