Journals reflections do not have to be in any specific format. The purpose of these journals is to connect what we discuss what you learn in the classroom to our daily life experiences, use what we know or experienced to analyze our deepest thoughts and feelings and express them with words.
With this in mind, the most important components of these journal reflections should be “what you think” and “how you feel”. There is no right or wrong but only true or not in journal writing.

- Times New Roman or Arial
- 1 ½ to 2 pages
