The Reflective Statement
The Reflective Statement provides you the opportunity to describe and assess your work in the course. The Reflective Statement serves as a guide to your portfolio in that it gives you and your instructor a clear, specific sense of what you have achieved in the course. From the CC2 Guide:
For the CCII Reflective Statement you will focus on the three core values below and explain how you have met the course expectations for these goals—those items identified as “do or demonstrate” through your course work and/or in your portfolio.
The three values you need to address:
- Core Value I.
Understand that writing is a multi-stage, recursive, and social process. (In particular, students should address how they have engaged in self-directed revision.)
- Core Value III. Understand how texts represent meaning and how the processes of writing and reading create and interpret meaning.
- Core Value V. Understand the role and use of information in writing.
- Core Value VII. Understand the power and ethical responsibility that comes with the creation of written discourse.
The Reflective Statement is an important component of your portfolio affects its evaluation.Give yourself ample time to craft it carefully. While analyzing and reflecting on a semester’s work, you may identify an issue in one of more of your essays that you can improve upon through further revision.
