How to write reflections

You have to start the your reflection with what you did ofcourse! You have to include a summary of whatever it is that you did! Don't miss any major part of that event that could have possibly either increased your knowledge on something or helped you with something new.

so why don't you just sit back relax and just keep watching this for 15 seconds before continuing to the next point!

Or you can just skip the 15 seconds and continue on the topic on how to write the reflection. For all those who actually did as I instructed, you would probably be very angry because the alternative was read 15 seconds later but for all those that just skipped! I see the high school failures.

Anyways as I was saying you continuing but stating what you found easy and this is important to you because you are including something that you had either achieved if this is a connection to a previous reflection or if it is the first time it is the first thing that you were able to achieve generally and include things that you found easy to achieve.

Then ofcourse you have to then include things that you found challenging and what basically grinded your gears and why.

How about you comment on what grinds your grinds. This is basically the easiest way to find out the soul part of your reflection. Just find something that annoyed you or something that you found very difficult about the topic.

At this point after being done with something that grinds your gears you have to discuss how you were able to over come that issue and how you were to solve the problem that made the situation so difficult.There has to be something that you did to solve that issue
For example: This holiday I did lots of drills for my basketball club................................................................
difficulty: Could not do a perfect lay up
solution: I practiced my steps 
so by stating that you practiced you have stated how you were able to over come that issue.
If you were in IB you would have been expected to add an ATL skill as well:
Thinking skills
Research skills
AND SO ON....................
You would have had to explain which skill you have improved and show how you improved in your reflection.
Wait you're not an IB student? Well good for you because now you don't have to waste time writing an extra paragraph you can just skip to the next step.
Finally you write what you would have done to make it better. Maybe if you got the chance to choose this club again what would you have tried to improve, that's an example and I would say if I did improve my right lay up that the next time I get to be in such a situation, I would try to perfect my left lay up now and work for the steps for that lay up. If you hadn't perfected the right lay up then you can talk about trying to perfect it and showing how you would have learn't the skills faster. What would you have done in order to grasp the concept of the footwork for the perfect right lay up for example!
