General Research Information
Reflective Essay Infomation
- Do write your ideas in a descriptive manner. Your thoughts must be stated clearly, so your readers understand exactly what you wanted to say.
- Do remember: despite your essay being of a reflective type, it is still an academic paper, so try to keep it as formal as possible.
- Do follow the classical structure: an introduction, main body paragraphs, and a conclusion.
- Do keep in mind: you should write your essay basing it not only on a personal experience, but also using some factual material.
- Don’t be too personal. Despite the fact a reflective essay is based on personal experience, remember you are writing an academic essay, not a letter to a friend.
- Don’t try to cram all your experiences into one essay; choose the most important and significant moments.
- Don’t try to write everything at once. Compose a mind-map and create an outline which gives a clear direction to your writing.
- Don’t make your essay a free-flowing analysis, including all your unstructured thoughts, insights, and ideas. Sort your ideas in a logical order.
