Reflection Paper #3 Topic/Prompt

A. Locate something that relates to one of the chapters in “everyday life”. There are several songs, TV shows, movies, poems, quotes, comics, YouTube clips, etc. that relate to all of the topics mentioned. Pay attention to these things and include what it is (by listing a link if it’s something found online, or a clipping of a comic, song lyrics, etc.) and then explain your rationale for how that relates to the content in that chapter. Please note – typing out song lyrics will not be included in the word count. The best method would be to include a link for the song/clip/etc. Do not use an example that was specifically mentioned in the chapter (a movie, song, comic, etc.), as you are expected to think beyond that.
B. Another option could pertain to analyzing an interpersonal encounter of interest to you that has happened at some point in your life related the chapters covered this week. You might develop this entry along these lines:
Description: What was the interpersonal encounter? Who was it with? What happened? Be descriptive.
Analysis: What course concepts help you in understanding this experience? How do the concepts apply?
Conclusion/Learning: What did you learn about yourself and your interpersonal attitudes and skills? What steps do you need to take, if any, to improve?

Let me know if you get confused.
