Reflection Content (60 points)
_____ The writer provides an introduction and context (or their personal “background story”) for their learning and development over the first semester in Learning Community E and at university. (This will include a few sentences connecting their story to their role as a member of the learning community.)

_____The writer has a conclusion that brings their reflection of the semester and discussion of academic work to a satisfactory close. (This will at a minimum include a final word on what was learned throughout the semester.)

_____The writer clearly introduces and discusses the significance of the evidence to his or her learning. The writer points to specific moments in their development, and in so doing answers the “So what?” question. The writer illustrates this development with an analysis of assignments from all Learning Community E classes.

_____ The reflection thoughtfully incorporates the developments of their Habits of Mind as a scholar in discussing their evidence.

_____ Writer meticulously avoids making generic statements, by using details and examples to illustrate learning and development. Writer references and explains the documents the student provided as evidence of learning.

_____The writer organizes their reflection with paragraphs that flow together in a logical way – using transition sentences to lead from one thought to the next. Only one main idea is introduced in a paragraph. Grammar and usage errors kept to a minimum. No sentence errors. The reflection follows correct MLA formatting conventions.
