Responses to questions must be a minimum of 250 words in length, be
thoughtful and relevant, and include original and/or critical thought. The point of the journal reflection is
NOT for students to simply provide a summary of the issues at hand; rather, students are to think
critically about the issue, form and state an opinion, and create a coherent argument to support their
perspectives. Responses should consider the questions asked as well as students’ thoughts on readings,
especially: How do the readings relate to one’s own family experiences and/or the experiences of the
families’ students work or interact? How do one’s cultural experiences influence the student’s work with
families? You will benefit more from this course when you use classes as a jumping off point for further
thought and reflection and maintain a daily reflective journal.
Here are two questions that I would like for you to reflect on:
- How would like to incorporate the seven principles of partnership in your professional world? How does theory turn into practice?
- This course puts heavy emphasis on parents of children with disabilities, one of our topics focused on immigrant parents raising children with disabilities,please reflect on this topic incorporating your personal experiences.
