Reflection Paper

Due: May 7, 2015 (turn-in at final exam)

Grade: 50 point comprehension assignment

Goal: To show me how you have evolved over the course of a semester.

To meet the goal of this assignment, you have the freedom to write what you think is necessary.  However, I have found that some students in the past have struggled to begin reflective or open-ended assignments.  If you struggle to begin this assignment, you might start by responding to one of the following prompts.

  • Tell me about a part of the course that challenged your beliefs about coaching.
  • Tell me about how a part of the course reinforced some (or most) of your beliefs about coaching and sport.
  • Tell me about how your beliefs have not evolved much as a result of this course.
  • Tell me about how this course did not help you understand more about the field of coaching.
  • Tell me about how you view the profession of coaching differently.

Although this paper is open-ended, I ask that you please follow these conventions:

  • Length: 1-2 pages, printed, double-spaced (no need to submit through D2L, just bring a paper copy to the final exam)
  • Name: You may put your name on your paper, OR leave your name off.  This is your choice.  Please recognize that simply excluding your name does not make the assignment completely anonymous, especially if you discuss a specific exchange or event from class that you were involved in.  Take that into account.
  • Grading: I will assess credit for completing this assignment; I will not be grading it for its content.
