Example of reflective writing in a healthcare assignment Description In a placement during my second year when I was working on a surgical ward, I was working under the supervision of my mentor, caring for a seventy-two year old gentleman, Mr Khan pseudonymwho had undergone abdominal surgery. I had been asked to remove his wound dressing so that the doctor could assess it on the ward round. My mentor was called to another patient at this point, so at her request I stayed with Mr Khan while we waited for the doctor to come to see him.
Truth is Stranger than Fiction Small Group Week Email Discussion Groups Class Presentations A note about reflection journals: Guidance is needed to help students link personal learning with course content. Personal Journal - Students will write freely about their experience. This is usually done weekly.
These personal journals may be submitted periodically to the instructor, or kept as a reference to use at the end of the experience when putting together an academic essay reflecting their experience. Dialogue Journal - Students submit loose-leaf pages from a dialogue journal bi-weekly or otherwise at appropriate intervals for the instructor to read and comment on.
While labor intensive for the instructor, this can provide continual feedback to students and prompt new questions for students to consider during the semester.
Highlighted Journal - Before students submit the reflective journal, they reread personal entries and, using a highlighter, mark sections of the journal that directly relate to concepts discussed in the text or in class.
This makes it easier for the instructor to identify the student to reflect on their experience in light of course content.

The instructor can provide a list of terms at the beginning of the semester or for a certain portion of the text.
Students could also create their own list of key phrases to include. Journal entries are written within the framework of the course content and become an observation of how course content is evident in the service experience.
Double-entry Journal - When using a double-entry journal, students are asked to write one-page entries each week: Students describe their personal thoughts and reactions to the service experience on the left page of the journal, and write about key issues from class discussions or readings on the right page of the journal.
Students then draw arrows indicating relationships between their personal experiences and course content. This type of journal is a compilation of personal data and a summary of course content in preparation of a more formal reflection paper at the end of the semester.

Why was this significant to you?
What underlying issues societal, interpersonal surfaced as a result of this experience? How will this incident influence your future behavior?
