Guidelines for Reflections

These typed expositions are typically 1/2-1 page long, single-spaced, that are due the day after a class discussion.

  • depth of reflection
  • incorporate contradictory ideas
  • conduct your own research and summarize what you found
  • explain what you found most compelling and why
