Writing Reflection

After completing any project or piece of writing, two things are extremely helpful in making sure that your finished product is as good as it can possibly be.

1) Take a look at the piece yourself and ask you some questions about how effective it is. Ask things like

  • is my point absolutely clear?
  • have I used effective word choices to make sure that my point gets across well?
  • is my spelling and punctuation correct?

2) Ask someone else to look over your work and ask similar questions.

After writing your piece about someone that has made a difference in your life (or any other assignment), take a look at the document below. Answer it honestly yourself (don’t just say “it’s good enough.”) Really pay attention to how well you did your job. Then give your writing to someone else and have that person ask the kinds of questions you find on the back.
