REFLECTIONS – Guidelines

Objectives: The objective of this course is to be able to appreciate ethical issues that are evident / generated in World War I.  Your reflection should demonstrate an understanding of ‘ethics’ in the context of World War I.  

The Reflection is:

  • personalized comment  (you can use “I”)
  • somewhere between an essay and a journal (use paragraphs but you don’t need to have an introduction, body and conclusion). 
  • designed to encourage you to explore your thoughts coherently and logically and to permit me to evaluate how the course content impacts on you.

Do’s and Don’t’s:

  • Don’t just NARRATE or DESCRIBE
  • Do try to understand an issue, phenomenon, etc.
  • Do try to present your views, thoughts and opinions

Topic: Put yourself in the place of a 16-20 year old sometime during 1914-1919. [Select a brief period during that 5 year span] and reflect on ethical implications of one aspect of World War I. You could choose to be in any country and on any continent. 

Form: You are expected to express yourself clearly and develop your ideas logically and coherently. Personal styles may vary.
