Reflection on Writing For this assignment, you will compile your work from the course and write a detailed reflection on the growth that you have achieved throughout the semester.Rhetorical Goals1. To show convincingly that you have experienced growth in your writing and reading practices over the course of the semester 2. To develop process skills such as self-evaluation and goal-setting3. To identify your strengths and weaknesses as a writer4. To track the development of one or more products/performancesForward Reaching TransferIn the required reading, Sandra Giles argues for three primary benefits to reflective writing. First, she asserts that self-reflective writing can help the writer set goals and acknowledge intentions. The act of writing these elements can enable the writer to see patterns and processes present in their writing that lead to enhanced ability in future projects (writing and otherwise). The second benefit Giles sees for the reflection process is the act of metacognition—or thinking about your thinking.The habit of metacognition can lead to insights into the writer’s own mind and development. This habit leads to a recursive process that can continue into other projects. Finally, analyzing the choices the writer makes offers a significant advantage in future projects because the writer can better understand the reasoning behind those choices and make changes. These benefits can be seen not only in the writing process but other areas of life as well. Giles even uses the example of painting her kitchen to demonstrate how the self-reflective process can lead to insight and growth. Required ReadingSandra Giles “Reflection Writing and the Revision Process: What Were you Thinking”CriteriaLength1500 WordsAudienceYour InstructorStyleFormal Letter addressed to your instructor in first-personStructure Contains well developed paragraphs and sectionsCitationsUse and correctly cite data/information from previous writing assignments AND from the Giles article. Cohesion and CoherenceUses the questions and template to create a cohesive and coherent argument for growth during the semester.Writing the ReflectionThis final project asks you to examine your writing from the entire semester. Your goal is to identify two significant moments of revision as well as two writing habits that you have developed over the course of the semester. To prepare for this reflection, you should revisit your previous submissions for each learning unit, including your LU#1 and LU#2 reflection letters. You will write your reflection in the form of a letter addressed to me (your instructor). Use the following questions as a guide when writing the letter. These questions will form the content of your letter. You should support the answers to the questions using quotations from the Giles article and your previous assignments. However, you should structure your letter according to your process and progress throughout the semester. The following are a template to organize your reflection and a grading rubric with the learning outcomes and writing elements you are expected to explore in your reflection letter.


Tell the reader (your instructor) what you intend for the essay to do. Describe the purpose(s) of the reflection and the effect(s) you want it to have on the reader. Include a clear thesis about your growth in writing and reading practices throughout the semester.

Body Paragraphs

Describe your process when working on your essays. What kind of planning did you do? What steps did you go through, what changes did you make along the way, what decisions did you face, and how did you make the decisions? Compared to the beginning of the semester, how has your writing changed? How has this course prepared you for writing in your discipline?

  • What writing habits did you develop? Be sure to identify two habits and explain them.
  • Discuss your revision process. Identify two significant moments of revision. Explain each moment and offer specific examples.
  • Discuss the people who assisted you in your process. How did comments from your peers, in peer workshop, help you? How did any class activities on style, editing, etc., help you?
  • Discuss how this class knowledge and skills assisted you with writing in college and in classes in your field.
  • On a scale of one to ten, with ten being the highest, rate your level of confidence in your ability to succeed in college writing assignments. Discuss any changes to your rating and/or any changes in the reasons for your rating from your Beginning of the Semester Reflection. Or, discuss why your rating and reasons remain the same.
  • What writing knowledge gaps and what areas of improvement with writing skills did you identify from taking this class?
  • On scale of one to ten, with ten being the highest, rate your performance in this class. Discuss the reasons for your rating.

You could also address the following questions:

  • Which activity, assignment, or topic was most engaging for you? Explain why.
  • When did you feel most excited about what you were learning?
  • Which activity or topic was the least engaging and exciting for you? Explain why.
  • What action that anyone (instructor or student) took did you find most affirming or helpful?
  • What action that anyone (instructor or student) took did you find most puzzling or confusing?
  • What surprised you most about the class discussions, reactions, or topics covered in the coursework?
  • What writing knowledge and skills from the course projects (Informative Summary, Rhetorical Analysis, and Study of a Professional Community) can you draw on to write effectively in college and classes in your field? How confident are you with future academic writing assignments?


Close your letter with a self-assessment on how you have grown throughout the semester Remember to sign the letter. After you’ve drafted it, think about whether your letter and essays/process match up. Do the essays provide the evidence that your letter says they do? Have you thoroughly assessed your writing process?
