Tips on Writing a Reflection paper (from my instructor)
1. A reflection paper is not simply a summary of the assigned readings or a stream of conscious mind dump.
2. A reflection paper is your identification of the main themes of the readings integrated with your class room or work experience and
how both affect your thinking and practice.
3. A reflection paper is your chance to add your thoughts and analysis to what you have read and experienced.
4. A reflection paper is meant to illustrate your understanding of the material and how it affects your ideas and possible practice in
5. Begin by jotting down some of the main themes of the readings and points that stand out in your mind. Decide why they stand out to
6. Using the first person singular (“I”), relate the readings to your previous knowledge and experience.
7. Consider if and how what you have read and learned changes your thinking and might affect your practice in both personal and
professional situations.
8. Review the readings to be sure you’ve included all the relevant information you can and made all the connections you can.
9. Give your reflection paper structure with an opening paragraph, main body, and conclusion.
10. Write the body of the paper first by using Steps 4-7, and then decide what your opening paragraph should say. The opening
paragraph may be brief, but it should offer an overall statement of your perspective based on what you’ve learned (e.g., Before I read
the articles for NUTR 456, I had never considered that Dietitians have a wide scope of practice and that the work setting largely
dictates the scope of practice for dietitians.) Then go on to describe which readings affected your thinking and why. You could
disagree with some of the readings or ideas. The conclusion your reflection may also be brief (e.g., I did not know the difference
between the SOP and SOPP before reading the articles, and now I understand that the SOP and the SOPP are related to each other in the
following ways……..).
11. Include in-text references and a reference page for any materials you cite using APA or CBE citation formatting
