The critical reflection paper is also a commentary on the overall arguments proposed by these authors. Your reflection paper has two missions: I. to summarize an author’s or authors’ main ideas and II. to respond to their main ideas with reactions based on your synthesis and arguments, using real-world examples of regulation and evidence-based research to back your arguments. Your paper must be written under the following specific guidelines: • You must use 12 point, Times New Roman font; • Your paper must be between 5 and 6 pages; • You must number your pages; • You must cite your sources and use a legitimate citation style. • Please be consistent throughout your paper and also include a bibliography; • You must have a clear thesis statement, somewhere between 1 and 2 sentences long; • You must use proper grammar, sentence structure, punctuation, and spelling. Please use italics and quotations when necessary; i.e. when referencing legislation and articles.
