Reflective Journal Rubric

The reflective journal is designed to help you organize your thoughts on a topic or concept, to document your work and experience, to provide a place for you to write questions and comments, and to help me by providing additional insight into your experiences. Journal entries will often be prompted with specific questions, but may at times be loosely guided with topic suggestions, or simply a general place for your reflections. Journal reflections are typically worth 20 points per week.
