  4. Topics may include any information covered in class, from the Six Minute English, TED Talk, your midterm project, to your blog writing, or your class activities.
  5. Consider the followings when writing your reflection:
    1. How do you like the Six Minute English website, as your language learning resource?
    2. How do you like TED Talk, as your language learning resource?
    3. Have your blogging skills improved over time? Do you think it’s a good idea to create and maintain a blog as part of the course? or you prefer to hand paper and pencil homework.  Why?
    4. How do you like the pair work or group work in class? Did you exchange information and express your thoughts in English with your peers?
    5. What have we studied/learned so far that interest you?
    6. What new things have you learned?

  6. Deadline: Please submit your reflection paper to Blackboard before 12/16 (Monday). Please also hand in a hard copy when you come to the class on Wednesday.

重要提醒: Writing a reflection helps you find what is meaningful to you and adds value to your learning. Do not simply outline or summarize the materials we have covered. I want to know what the materials mean to you.
