Reflective essays are supposed to reflect your ability to integrate several readings assigned on a given class date. The most important task in writing a reflective essay is reading the assigned materials. The idea of reflective essays is not to summarize your readings. On the contrary, reflective essays should include your response to the readings- your reaction to what you read. At the same time, reflective essays should demonstrate that you have read and understood the materials. You may choose to skip one of the assigned readings if it does not quite fit your argument, but generally, your essay should integrate most of your readings.
