Reflexivity is reflection for the purpose of personal growth and developing deeper understanding. Sometimes this understanding is of ourselves; sometimes it allows us to understand others. When we develop a better understanding of others and what they experience, we can grow, even if only in small ways. These journals are a tool to promote that growth.
In a journal entry of at least 250 words, record your thoughts about these questions:
- What do you think about the topics covered in this week?
- What in your personal experience may have influenced your thinking about this issue? Consider social/cultural norms, religious beliefs, environment, and background.
