An important component of this research project is your reflection on it.

This individual reflection should be 1-2 pages, single-spaced (addressed to me, as in “Dear Professor Belli” … no formal headings/letter formatting necessary), reflecting on what you learned during the extended process of developing/researching/writing/revising your Project #2, including: choosing your topic; draft/revising research proposals; researching; the write-up drafting/revising process; creation of any “creative” products (if applicable); preparing your in-class presentation; in-class discussions / workshops/reviews; conferences with me; meetings with librarians & tutoring (if applicable). Just like you have done for Project #1 far, the key is critical and thoughtful reflection. What did you learn from this project/process? What did you struggle with? What went well? How did you develop as a writer/thinker? (etc.)

Each person will submit his reflection on OpenLab, so it will be public. Therefore, it should be an honest reflection about the successes (or lack thereof) of your research project, but with an awareness that this is a public document.

Your Final Project Reflection will be graded on the completeness, thoughtfulness, and quality of your reflection, and your ability to critically discuss your experiences researching and writing/revising for this project.
