Reflective journals are personal records of students’ learning experiences. In this journal you will document your journey through your cumulative experience project. This is an informal writing exercise and it will be graded on completion and not on accuracy of the content. In this reflection you can document your questions, speculations, self-awareness, ideas, critiques, or thoughts of how your project relates to the course content. The journal will be completed weekly and each entry should be at least 500 words.
