Reflection Rubric - Emotion

Reflection is a key component of understanding TOK concepts. Questions will guide the student in Reflection Assignments. Reflection Assignments will be graded on the criteria outlined in the Reflection Rubric.

To be effective and constructive, reflective writing needs to go beyond description of events and your own associated feelings. You need to:

Step back, explore and analyze the questions

Consider the different perspectives of other people involved

Show awareness of social, organizational, and/or political influences

Show what you have learned in the process.

Because reflective writing involves personal analysis of experience and feelings, it is acceptable to use the "first person," i.e. to describe what "I did" and how "I felt." The style however, should not be too informal and the tone not too conversational.
