* [++Responsibility the ability to take ownership of actions and understand the consequences of those actions for oneself and others++]

* [++Engagement a sense of investment and involvement in learning++]

----

[++'''The Prompt:'''++]

->[++Your responsibility and engagement this semester are indicative of your future success in more ways than you may realize. '''Do you believe you are a responsible and engaged student? Why or why not?''' Discuss your responsibility and engagement as a college student {+inside+} and {+outside+} of our learning community (LC), using '''{+specific evidence+}''' regarding attendance, assignments, and exam performance. Conclude your argument with a plan for responsible and engaged behaviors that will help you move forward in the second half of the semester.++]

[++'''Advice and Requirements:'''++]

* [++Honesty is always appreciated. It is okay to admit that you might not be as engaged and/or responsible as you (or I) would like you to be.++]

* [++Your reflection should be well-organized, with an introduction that includes a thesis statement, smooth transitions between well-defined paragraphs, and a satisfying conclusion. Students who do well on this type of reflection typically write at least 2-3 pages.++]

* [++The evidence you provide should serve as {+proof+} of the claims you are making. Include {+specific+} examples in your discussion.++]

* [++Your text should be 12-point, Times New Roman, and double-spaced with 1'' margins. Save the file in Word or PDF format before you upload it.++]
