96. Videos Reflections
CRITERIA?(same criteria as before?but make improvements!)
Pick 5 videos from the list below and write a reflection for each of them.
Each ?reflection? should relate to the topics below.
You have the freedom to choose how you relate the assigned reading to your own experiences. However, the paper must demonstrate reflection and the application of the various material.
Organize your ideas, observations, thoughts, new things you learned and what else you got out of the reading.
Each reflection should be a well considered, thoughtful, well written paragraph. This also includes quality in writing (as a skill) ? grammar, spelling ,and sentence structure count.
Read the various questions below to expand on how to approach writing these reflections.
DO NOT write something like:
– “I think it is neat.”
– “I learned that blue pencil is used in drawn animation.”
– “Animation is a lot of work.”
Do no JUST state or list ONE fact you have learned.
Expand on the examples that you are referring to by writing about your own thoughts. You need to include specific examples with your subjective content.
Questions to Consider / to help you expand on the reflections.
