Without knowing your grade level, or college level it’s hard to know what your teacher expects. did your teacher tell you what to refect on? Here are 2 approaches, but I also suggest you google “what is a reflective essay.” You’ll get many answers. (Also, look up reflect -verb, in a dictionary.
1. This essay will be a narrative, or a story, that tells about your feelings and experiences as you participated in the activities of this class. Remember, this is an essay about you as a writer, not a class evaluation or instructor evaluation.
2. Pick one or more of your essays and talk about the process of writing it. What were you thinking about during the first draft? How did your thinking change by the second draft? What changes did you make in the essay and why?
3. Discuss the peer reviewing process and instructor feedback. How did these comments on your work affect your thinking and writing. Give specific examples.
4. Make specific statements about your progress as a writer and use quotes from your work to support those statements.
Example: If you started the term having trouble with vague, unsupported arguments and by the end of the term, you learned how to support specific statements, quote one of the vague statements from an early draft and a clear, supported statement from a later essay.
If you feel you made no progress, be as specific as you can about why, and give examples from your writing which demonstrate areas where you feel you need to make improvement. What barriers do you feel between you and that improvement?
5. Evaluate your portfolio as a body of work. What have the materials in it contributed to you as a writer?
6. During the conclusion of the essay, talk about your future goals and challenges as a writer.
7. This essay must be typed, double spaced with one inch margins, and one page minimum length.
Your “reflective essay”—a piece of writing you complete at the end of the process—is an opportunity for you to look back on all of your hard work. Before you write a draft of your essay, collect all of your materials: project journal entries, research notes, visual aids, interviews, outlines, and anything else that you’ve used and created to complete your project. Look over all of this information and begin to evaluate your learning experiences and your final, completed project. This self-evaluation is important. You should be honest about the strengths and weaknesses of your finished project, and you should determine how the project could have been improved.
