ENGL 101 Final Reflective Essay
Now that you are nearing the completion of ENGL 101, you have reached a time when it can
be useful to you to reflect and evaluate your learning experience. In a fast­paced course such
as this one, you have worked hard and quickly to complete your assignments according to the
instructions given to you. Now is the opportunity for you to consider the experiences you had
had in writing throughout this course and how those experiences might be useful to you in
future courses.
This assignment asks you to reflect and consider the work you have done, how successfully you
feel you have completed it, and how the skills and strategies you have learned in completing
this work may help you in your future studies.
Since this assignment is reflective and self­evaluating, using “I, me, my” should be acceptable
as you write this essay.
The Assignment:
This assignment calls for you to write an essay of 800­1000 words, double spaced. The essay
should have the following academic essay elements:
1) a clear introduction, body, and conclusion
2) a clearly identifiable thesis statement in the introduction
3) evidence based upon your recollections and any material from the course (whether from the
texts, the online resources, the course modules, the feedback to drafts, or the conference
topics) that you might find relevant to mention in your discussion
800­1000 words
Possible approaches for the reflective essay in ENGL 101:
Here are two examples of approaches you can take in your reflective essay. Each approach has
three (3) parts. Be sure that you understand clearly what is expected of you. If you have
questions, be sure you ask your instructor.
You should choose
only one
of these tasks,
and you may not choose any other topic.
Approach One – Self­Evaluating Your Research Essay
What You Must do:
In this essay, you will
evaluate your work on the research essay assignment
. Your
purpose is to evaluate whether you chose wisely in selecting your topic for research writing, if
you used your research successfully, and how well you believe you completed the assignment.
How You Might Do This:
Since your essay uses a traditional structure for academic writing, you could try the following
Decide what your thesis should say and design your introduction to lead to your thesis. The
thesis might begin with a phrase such as, “My research essay turned out successfully
because…” or “My research assignment became problematic due to….” Your introduction can, of
course, briefly describe your assignment.
Describe and analyze the following in the body of your essay:
your topic and why you chose it (this should go beyond mere interest and consider
whether you thought carefully enough about the research potential/problems your
topic posed);
how/why you made research material decisions and conducted research in the
manner you did. In this section, you will want to comment on the databases you

searched on in the UMUC Information and Library Services interface. You might
also comment on key words on which you searched, new key words you came up
with during your searches, and your experience in retrieving full­text articles.
how your process worked out as you completed it. In this analysis, please account
for both successes and difficulties.
Discuss your
future application
in the conclusion of your essay. You will want to
on what you have discussed and
look towards
future research assignments. You
will explain how the lessons you learned from this assignment can help you correct flaws you
feel you had in your process and can remind you of good practices you followed that can make
future research projects successful. You should also give yourself a “grade” on, not the essay
itself, but on your research process and experience.
Approach Two­ Reflecting on Your ENGL101
What You Must Do:
In this essay, you will
evaluate your learning experience in ENGL101
. Your purpose is to
estimate where you think your writing skills were when you began the course and, by
examining the work you did in ENGL101, determine as best you can the skills that this course
helped you learn and develop.
How You Might Do This:
Since your essay uses a traditional structure for academic writing, you could try the following
Think of your thesis as a “then and now” proposition. Your essay’s introduction can offer
readers a brief look at why you took ENGL101 and lead to a thesis statement that begins with a
phrase such as “I began ENGL101 with “X” writing skills; now I…”
you learned particular skills. Remembering how you completed
assignments as well as any materials you find in the classroom that you think are relevant
(these can come from Course Content, the texts, the supplemental resources, the Course
Modules, the feedback you received on drafts of essays, the discussions in the classroom areas,
etc.), discuss
you learned particular skills that helped you complete
assignments successfully and increase your writing skill set.
In analyzing your acquisition of skills, it will be helpful to consider the course outcomes
for ENGL101. They are as follows:
apply the writing process to develop essays using various rhetorical
patterns in order to inform and persuade an audience
construct unified, coherent, and well­supported paragraphs using
principles of persuasion and exposition
demonstrate accurate grammar and mechanics in writing
analyze source material in order to integrate valid and reliable sources
using accepted documentation style
In writing this section of the essay, please be specific. You might refer to specific
grammatical issues (outcome #3) and the process of developing a topic (outcome
#1). Or you might refer to challenges you had in writing paragraphs (outcome #2) and
how the development of the paragraphs caused you to evaluate your thesis (outcome
#1). These are just some suggestions to help you develop your points that you want
to make for your essay.
Do not be afraid to discuss any areas in which you felt you did not achieve as much as you
would have liked to or wish you could have had more instruction or practice. This information
will be very helpful to your instructor.
3) In your conclusion, consider the skills you feel you are taking away from ENGL101 and how
these skills will help you in future courses you take. Consider also areas you think you will want
to continue to try to improve.
