Reflection Paper Instructions
PLEASE FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS OUTLINED- 1-10 for Reflection Paper
1. The paper should have a thesis, a main claim that the rest of the paper develops and supports, a unifying point that may or may not be controversial.
2. In writing the paper, avoid sources other than class texts, lectures, and discussions.
3. Discuss what a book “says” to you and how you responded in return.
4. Explain why it moves you, provokes you, or perplexes you-relating it to your own spiritual journey, if necessary, without turning the paper into an autobiography.
5. Ponder how key themes relate to one another and, if appropriate, how the text relates to its original context.
6. Avoid dwelling on a book’s significance for entire humanity or a large group of people, such as a particular race, gender, or class: rather focus on the effects it has had on you.
7. Do not write impressionistically; do not merely summarize the text; and do not recount others’ reflections on it, such as those in a preface or introduction. Put differently, do not just describe or analyze; also evaluate and take a position.
8. Think critically but civilly: use logic, eschewing fallacies, especially the ad hominem and straw man kind. You do not have to agree with an author’s claim; but before you disagree, be sure you have made good-faith efforts to understand his or her point of view.
9. A letter grade will be dropped for spelling, grammar, and diction. Written assignment will be graded based on content and writing competence.
10. The margin paper should be 1 inch from the top and bottom and from left and right; 5 to 8 pages; not counting cover page, and using Times New Roman 12-point font, double-spaced without gratuitous spacing or quotations.
On style, follow Kate Turabian’s A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations: Chicago Style for Students and Researchers, 7th ed., rev. Wayne C. Booth et al. (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2007).
A Reflection paper is not a research paper, nor is it a book report. You share some of the conversation you have had with a text in a “think piece”.
