2. Personal Reflections– reflection/journaling is a useful way to make personal meaning out of class readings and discussions by relating these to your own experiences. Reflect on the material you have read or that has been discussed during a recent class. Record your entries (typed and dated, please!) on individual sheets of paper that you keep in a folder. I will collect your reflections ON EXAM DAYS; late reflections will NOT be accepted. Your reflections will be kept strictly confidential.
You will complete 10 1-2 page, 3-part essays in which you will provide

- an evaluation of whether or not the theory or research â€œfitsâ€ with your own personal experience, including why or why not itâ€™s a good â€œfitâ€
