Rethinking Genres of Reflection: Student Portfolio Cover Letters and the Narrative of Progress.
Emmons, Kimberly
Composition Studies, v31 n1 p43-62 Spr 2003
Explores limitations of current reflective practices, starting with their ideological roots in the process movement. Highlights ways that students are able to remain distanced from the discursive conventions and social practices that they are ostensibly learning to control. Describes a revised reflective assignment involving student portfolio cover letters that explicitly asks students to situate their writing in relation to the expectations and habits of, in this case, academic discourse.
