Write a brief, three-paragraph essay related to your outcomes and personal and learning growth in this course. You do not need an introduction paragraph with thesis statement or conclusion paragraph for this assignment, but you should still open your discussion and end the assignment with appropriate start and stop points.
Consider questions such as the following:
Did you gain the knowledge and skills at the culmination of the course that you anticipated in your start-of-course reflection essay? Explain.
Did you find the various learning modules, such as the reading text, visual lessons, and audio recordings, helpful in learning course objectives and retaining knowledge? Explain.
Finally, were your initial worries satiated, or did you gain more than you anticipated? Explain.
Focus on one idea per paragraph, and remember: a well-developed paragraph is at least 5 to 10 explanatory sentences. For example, if in one paragraph you want to detail a reading obstacle you overcame, you should briefly touch upon the hindrance and then frame the steps and processes you used to yield successful results. Be sure to connect your ideas where applicable, and incorporate transition words, phrases, and ideas to move between topics and subtopics.
