Reflective Essay: Failure
Steps to the Reflective Essay:
Read the essay on failure.
Develop a STANCE on that topic. (Your position, belief, or assertion written in the form of defensible statement.) This is your thesis.
Find a personal experience that illustrates the truth of your stance (supports/proves it.)
In your retelling of the personal experience, include:
Sensory imagery (what you saw, heard, felt, smelled, etc.)
Vivid action verbs
Interior monologue (thoughts going through your head at the time)
Dialogue (if appropriate)
Concrete details (specifics)
Write about a second example that supports or shows the truth of your stance. You can use an example from:
Formulate a universal reflection that incorporates “we” “us” “our.” Your universal reflection shows how what was true for you, and what was true for your second example, is . Explain how your stance is a universal truth. You MUST have a universal reflection true for us all with the appropriate pronouns, or you will earn an “F” on this essay.
Introduction (attention-getter, Henry David Thoreau, stance)
2 nd Example
Your essay must be typed, double-spaced, and printed in black ink on one side of the paper only. (Sonora’s library is up and running, so there is no excuse not to type your essay.) Follow the conventions of spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Give your essay a title. Make sure your essay is at least 4 paragraphs in length and carefully follows the steps to the reflective essay.
You must BOLD FACE the pronouns “we” “us” and “our” in your universal reflection.
