To whom this may concern,
This essay is all about VIVID detail. Listed below is an elaborate explanation I typed word for word from 3 pages in my text book highlighting how to construct a reflection. I would like you to write a topic of the paper to anything you can relate to easily and vividly.
The essay should be 4 pages and have an academic level of a college senior.
THIS ASSIGNMENT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT; so please take your time and don't rush.
Below discussed the "components", "key parts", and "how to write it".
PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY AS IT IS IMPERATIVE TO THIS ASSIGNMENT; AND THE GRADING PROCESS WILL BE BASED ON THE POINTS LISTED BELOW.
---------------COMPONENTS OF REFLECTIONS-------------------
1) Find a relative topic
2) Consider your readers
+ How interesting will this topic be to your readers? Will they want to share in your experience?
3) Identify a purpose
+ A clear purpose makes the reflection coherent. Your purpose is not to teach a lesson
but rather to convey the significance of the experience-why it is important or memorable and why it is worth writing and reading about
4) Provide concrete details
+ Concrete details stimulate readers' imagination and make your reflection come alive. Use factual details such as dates to provide background information. Augment visual details with your other senses: smells, sounds, tastes, and feelings.
+ Use dialog when possible
5) Think about your organization
+ Telling what happened in chronological order is the simplest organization for writers to use, but it is not the only one possible. Conceptual order explores different points and links them together.
For example, you might reflect on a photograph, examining details one by one and discussing how they related to your family's past.
6) Start fast
+ The beginning MUST show the writer's involvement and gain the reader's interest
7) Finish strong
+ Effective conclusions invite readers to reflect further. Ending with a question or an issue to think about is usually better than trying to sum up with a moral lesson
--------------------KEYS TO REFLECTIONS--------------------
1) Tell a good story
+Readers have to be interested in your story to understand the significance. Often reflections gain and keep readers' interest by presenting a conflict or a difficult decision that must be resolved.
2) Let the details convey the significance
+Select details carefully to communicate meaning. Identify people by more than how they look. Think about MANNERISMS, GESTURES, AND HABITS to suggest their character.
3) Be honest
+ Telling the truth about your thoughts ad actions can build a strong rapport with your audience, but beware of becoming sentimental. Too much emotion may turn readers off.
4) Focus on the little things in life
+ A reflection need not reveal earth shattering secrets or teach crucial life lessons
. It may be as simple as describing something that makes you happy. Remember that small moments of significance can be just as rewarding for readers as great events.
5) For a reflection on an image or object, let the reflection grow out of the details
+Your close reading of details and your explanation of the significance of the experience is crucial.
-------------------HOW TO WRITE A REFLECTION----------------
1) CHOOSE A SUBJECT

+ How can you engage readers?
+ What will they gain reading your reflection?
2) DEVELOP A RESPONSE
