Write Reflective Journal (Part 3)

Separate groups: Group A

The Reflective Journal is a place to write short reflections that are posed during the course in Lessons and elsewhere. These are private between student and instructor and allow a non-formatted space for reflecting about your weekly learning and help you realize how you have changed based on the learning you have accomplished during the course.

Please make sure to enter a “Heading” for each reflection that your are entering to keep them separate.

Please be honest about your reflections as these should be your actual thoughts not regurgitation of textbook content.
