CRITICAL REFLECTIONS

CRITICAL REFLECTIONS

Over the course of the semester students are expected to write two ( 2 ) Critical Reflections selected from the assigned Critical Reflections reading list (See Below). Students can choose, from the reading list, any one ( 1 ) readings, but the first reading and subsequent Critical Reflection will be preselected (non negotiable) by the beginning of the semester.

What is a Critical Reflection?
A Critical Reflection (interpretive essay) has two missions: to summarize a source’s main idea and to respond to the source’s main ideas with reactions based on your synthesis. Source: How to Write a Critical Response, How to Approach Critical Thinking
