From a PHILOSOPHICAL POINT OF VIEW, please write a REFLECTION JOURNAL ABOUT YOUR READING OF CHAPTERS 1, 2, AND 3 OF THE BOOK— STARRING AT THE SUN by Irvin Yalom
Once again, the book is STARRING AT THE SUN by Irvin Yalom AND THE REQUIRED READINGS ARE CHAPTERS 1 TO 3 ONLY. Please no plagiarism as I will go the extra mile to check for plagiarism.
*********** I AM ATTACHING SAMPLE JOURNALS SO YOU WOULD HAVE AN IDEA ABOUT HOW THE INSTRUCTOR/PROFESSOR WANTS IT TO LOOK LIKE.
This is an assignment for Death and the Meaning of Life. So, please take note of the class name and write a reflective journal that takes DEATH and THE MEANING OF LIFE into consideration.
The requirement for the assignment is below:
I need a 2500 words REFLECTIVE JOURNAL
******PLEASE THIS IS A REFLECTION JOURNAL – NOT A DISCUSSION OR SUMMARY.
1) The minimum length for each journal is 2,000 words. For a B+ or A the minimum is 3,000 words. There is no maximum.
2) The file must be named as follows or there will be five points deducted.
3) The journal must be composed on a word processor in Microsoft Word; it must show your reading of the assigned materials, your thinking about matters relevant to the course, and your growth in understanding.
4) The journal is not a summary; it is a response to the readings. It is not a discussion of what went on in class. The order of learning is supposed to be: reading, writing, and talking, so journal entries should be made before class discussions of the text; you must enter the dates of your writing. (Don’t put the assignments in the headings. Those references show up in the entry itself.) It is good to leave in earlier misunderstandings when they are corrected at later dates (make a note showing your change of mind); this shows development.
5)The journals should reflect the student’s humility (a core Benedictine virtue) instead of a “know it all” attitude. Don’t “criticize Shakespeare”; you will lose points for this. Instead of, “Romeo and Juliet were too young; this is stupid,” say, “I was surprised at R’s and J’s youth. I have a lot to learn about love in those days.”
You may disagree with an author or the instructor, but support your position with reflective reasons and the appropriate scholarly research.
The journal must be in proper scholarly form for the humanities. Parenthetical documentation must be used (MLA style) to demonstrate your reading of the text (and not some other source) but Works Cited is not necessary. Do not use “on page ….” (Notice that ideas and information must be documented whether or not there is any quotation.) As a ballpark example, a typical journal might have three or more citations per page.
The directions for the journal – especially length and MLA style and MLA parenthetical documentation — are a kind of “gate”; the paper may receive a zero if these requirements aren’t closely followed.
The journals are basically a test of how thoroughly you read and reflected on the readings. Journals must comment primarily on the reading assignments but also on other learning activities such as videos…
