Relatively brief reflection papers (~ 500 words) which describe connections you have noticed between subject matter raised in class and your own life experiences. The purpose of this exercise is to serve as an incentive for each of you to stay attentive to the possibility of using/applying ideas from this class in “real-life,” and to keep me informed about ways in which course material may be applicable or useful. Examples of appropriate topics include a) insights you’ve experienced during the course concerning yourself, friends, roommates, relatives, etc.; b) new ways of looking at people or relationships in light of facts or ideas encountered in this course; c) a possible new volunteer or career interest discovered during the course; d) new intellectual insights about mind/brain/etc.
