Project #49680 - Philosophy reflection

  1. Philosophy Reflection Paper:  One of the objectives of this course is to you to develop your own philosophical perspective in reaction to the multiple philosophies that we have been studying.  Your Philosophy Reflection Paper is a time for you to put into words your own reaction to and/or reflection on the material presented during the course of the semester and its significance for your own personal life.

Reflection is a cognitive process that promotes self-awareness and encourages self-assessment. The cognitive process of reflecting on one’s authentic knowledge, practice, and beliefs/attitudes is important to developing professionalism. Reflection allows one to think critically about one’s ability to effectively join content knowledge with practice to reach diverse populations of learners.

Self-reflection provides a means for practitioners to identify issues; state opinion, inferences, and predictions; and express feelings, beliefs, and attitudes. The practitioner’s responsibility in self-reflection is to support personal opinion, inference, and prediction by inclusion of relevant content knowledge presented in published works. 

PLEASE note that this is NOT a research paper and does not require additional research.  It is a personal reflection paper and should be written in the first person.  It should be intensely personal and discuss your own experience in the course.  Research papers turned in will receive a 0.  This is a reflection paper.

By asking the following questions prior to writing your Reflection paper, you will be able to more effectively integrate the inclusion of textual material into your essay:

·         How have the assigned readings this semester either supported or challenged your knowledge, attitudes, and/or beliefs?  Reference specific passage(s) in the assigned readings.

·         What new knowledge or new understanding of previous knowledge have you acquired this semester from the assigned readings?  Reference specific passage(s) in the assigned readings.

·         With which philosophers do you find yourself most in agreement?  With which philosophers do you find yourself most in disagreement?  Why?  Reference specific passage(s) in the assigned readings.

Make sure you address the major issues raised in the discussions throughout the semester.  In particular, 
since philosophy seeks to find answers to most of the important questions every human being must face, your reflection paper should demonstrate your own approach to important philosophical questions.  

Notes about the Personal Philosophy Paper:

    1. The paper must include at least one quote from the assigned readings in either A Short History or Sophie’s World.  You can quote either text.  That is completely up to you.  Citation information may be informal with the name of the book and the page number in parentheses after the quote. 
    2. The paper must specifically quote at least two (2) posts made by fellow students and/or the professor in the Unit discussions.  Each post must be quoted and the author of the post must be identified clearly.  You should indicate why these posts were important and/or how they challenged you to think more carefully.
    3. The paper must be a minimum of 1000 words. 
    4. The paper must be double-spaced, Times-Roman font 12 point with a Title page that includes the name of the student who is writing the paper.  No works cited page is necessary unless you choose to use additional sources (this is not required).
