Project #85538 - Midterm Reflection (I need two different essay)

For your Midterm Reflection, you will compose a reflective essay that discusses your continuing development into a college student. Think about all of the assignments, readings, lectures, and class discussions you have taken part in this semester thus far. Use this essay as an opportunity to reflect on the impact of your learning experiences and your development as a college student. As you will recall, in class we discussed the habits of mind for successful college students. They are listed below. Discussion of these habits of mind should be an integral part of your reflection. Habits of Mind Habits of mind refers to ways of approaching learning that are both intellectual and practical and that will support students' success in a variety of fields and disciplines. The framework identifies eight habits of mind essential for success in college: Curiosity—the desire to know more about the world. Openness—the willingness to consider new ways of being and thinking in the world. Engagement—a sense of investment and involvement in learning. Creativity—the ability to use novel approaches for generating, investigating, and representing ideas. Persistence—the ability to sustain interest in, and attention to, short- and long-term projects. Responsibility—the ability to take ownership of one's actions and understand the consequences of those actions. Flexibility—the ability to adapt to situations, expectations, or demands. Metacognition—the ability to reflect on one's own thinking as well as on the individual and cultural processes used to structure knowledge. This essay is a personal reflection. You have a considerable amount of freedom in choosing what will go in it; however, make sure to begin your essay with a clear introduction and thesis. The body of the essay should be well-structured, and the end of the essay should contain a satisfying conclusion. This is a college-level writing assignment. Spelling, punctuation, grammar usage, or sentence errors that detract from your reader's ability to understand your message should be avoided. The expectation is that your submission is a polished piece of work, and your essay will be graded accordingly. Questions to consider as you write your essay: ï‚· Your courses have required a good amount of reading and writing on your part. Discuss your growth as a reader and a writer this semester. What assignments have challenged you the most? ï‚· Discuss at least a few of the habits of minds. Which are your strengths? Which are your weaknesses? How are you working to improve? ï‚· Discuss your role as a colleague with your fellow students. How have you collaborated with your peers? What sorts of contributions have you made? What evidence proves that you made these contributions? ï‚· Which of your perspectives about college and life in general have developed or changed during your time at TAMU-CC? Which do you expect to remain the same? ï‚· Discuss areas of improvement and define specific actions you will take for the rest of the semester in order to enact these improvements. For example, have you been using a calendar or a planner? Have you been taking notes? ï‚· Discuss the effectiveness of your study habits. What might you need to change? What has worked thus far? These questions are a guide to assist you with completing this reflection. You do not need to answer all of them within your essay. Organization The reflection is a presentation of your work; therefore, it should be organized in such a way that is easy for you and the reader to navigate. Your reflection must be submitted via your instructor's (Prof. Carter) BlackBoard page on October 7, by 11:00 AM. Nuts & Bolts The reflective essay should be a minimum of three pages and no more than five pages. The essay should be formatted according to APA guidelines. Finally, you are encouraged to visit the CASA Writing Center at least once to have a draft of your paper evaluated. Appointments at the writing center do fill up, so plan ahead.
