Review the following: 

• all your invention assignments 

• your feedback draft 

• peer reviews you completed 

• feedback you received on your first reflection 

Step 2: Brainstorm Brainstorm ideas for your reflection, keeping in mind that roughly half of your reflection should be spent on both Looking Back and Looking Forward. Use the following questions to help you generate (invent) ideas. Choose the questions that resonate with you; you do not need to cover all of the questions but you should have a fairly equal balance between the two categories. Some questions to be answered in the reflection paper Looking Back Looking Forward 

• What did you learn about yourself as a writer during the work of the second project? 

• What were you most challenged by during the work of the second project? 

• What new strategies or processes did you try during the work of the second project? How did those risks work out? 

• How did you incorporate visuals or use technology to compose for your project? What new media did you try? How did it go? 

• What kind of feedback did you receive from your reviewers? Any surprises? How did you incorporate feedback into your revision? 

• How does the feedback align with how you see yourself as a writer? 

• What are you especially proud of in respect to your work on the second project? Why? 

• How has your vision of yourself and your relationship to writing changed since this course began? 

• How did you approach languaging in Project 2? Did you consider your own biases and assumptions or those of your audience? 

• What new approaches to or attitudes about writing will you adopt in the future? 

• What growth/strengths are you proud of? What skills are you still working on? Why?

 • What ​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​skills and habits practiced in this course will transfer or have already transferred to other composing situations, and why? 

• What lingering questions do you have about writing? 

• How will you see yourself as a writer/composer going forward, and how will that impact your experiences? 

• What types of texts will you write in the academic, professional, social, and civic areas of your life? 

• What are your new goals for yourself as a writer beyond this course? 

Step 3: Compose Compose an integrated narrative about what you learned about yourself as a writer during the work of the second project and in the course overall. Do not simply answer the questions above ; use the questions as a brainstorming and planning tool to help you dig deep as you process this learning experience for yourself and prepare a detailed written reflection for others. Organize your ideas in a way that helps your reader understand 

• your attitudes about what you’ve learned in this class, 

• the evolution of your writing, 

• and your perceptions about yourself as a writer. Support your claims with evidence that explains why you feel the way you do. Include: 

• detailed explanations 

• parts of texts you have written 

• visuals that support the message of the written text. 

Step 4: Include Visual Examples Include 5-7 visual examples (or evidence) of your experience with writing. Spend time selecting important examples that will show your readers something meaningful. 

This might include: 

• Engaging visuals, videos, or even audio content 

• Screenshots of your previous work or feedback (a great way to show evidence) 

• Design features (such colored text, white space, and headings) to emphasize key words and phrases
