Students will regularly submit a short reflection essay on something new that theyve learned in their preceding units(Population, Urbanization, and the Environment) either from another student, from the text, or from class discussions. They are intended to give students further opportunities to think about what they are learning and think critically about its meaning, and also allow them to speculate on how they will use this new information or skill.
Reflection essays should be approximately 250 to 300 words. Students should title their submission with their name, Unit and the theme of their reflection. While these are informal reflections, and so strict adherence to APA formatting not expected, students should cite and give credit to anyone whose thoughts or words influenced them, whether it is an article, textbook or website reference, or ideas expressed by the instructor or peers in Discussion.
