** The first reflection paper should cover material learned up until that point in the course.
Minimum requirements: Citations are not needed, but if citations they are used, they must be in text and a separate reference page at the end of the paper must all be in APA style. An acceptable range is between 3-4 pages double-spaced. The paper should not exceed 5 pages. A paper with fewer than three (3) full pages (1 inch margins on all sides) is not acceptable and will receive half-credit (50). A full page consists of text only; headers/footers, titles, name/date, and the like are NOT calculated in the full page requirement. Papers that fail to be comprehensive in integrating all of the material and do not meet the minimum requirements will receive half-credit (50 points). As the semester progresses, the papers will be expected to be more analytical and insightful.
