Prompt

The utility of reflections is that you have an opportunity to evaluate your experience for the week.

Often, we are caught up in the day-to-day and forget to purposefully reminisce about our recent experiences.

For example, I have a son, his name is Ethan. Once my wife returned to a full-time position after her family leave ended, I took on the primary caregiver responsibilities. There were times I stressed out and moments I broke down because caring for a new born is not easy.

In the moment, it difficult to recognize the experience we are living. But, reflecting on it, I can now see the richness of the experience. Being able to teach my son numbers, or watching him take his first steps, or having him learn a new word was very rewarding.

This is a long way of saying that with each passing week in the class — while it can be stressful you have to stay up to finish an assessment or a struggle to get to our class because of transportation woes — you are accomplishing a goal.

Instructions

Please write at least 6 sentences reflecting on the week.

Sentence #1: Your 1st Sentence should be a question. Examples of questions include:

  • What did you find most interesting about the reading or lecture? Why did you find this the most interesting?
  • What did you find most relevant to your daily life about the reading or lecture? Why did you find this the most relevant?
  • What image, table, or graphic in the reading or lecture did you find most interesting?
  • You are welcome to ask and answer your own question.

Sentence #2-6: Sentences 2 through 6 should be your response to the question you posed in sentence #1.
