Use “Reflection Paper Guidelines and Grading Rubric” for guidelines on how to write paper.
Please write paper in ESSAY FORMAT with introduction, conclusion, and body paragraphs. Be sure to address ALL parts of the topic (A, B, and C). If you write your paper in Word first, make sure that when you copy and paste your paper that you restore page formatting and have some form of distinguishing between paragraphs (either paragraph indentation or line space; keep in mind that with Canvas, you likely need to hit “enter” twice to create a line space between paragraphs). Paper formatting, along with grammar and spelling are taken into consideration in the grading process. Think of the paper as an opportunity to apply your knowledge to yourself to demonstrate that you understand the concepts! Approximate paper length is 2 pages.
