Reflective Essay Assignment
Complete all lessons prior to this assignment.
Write a reflective essay in which you explore a personal experience that connects with a theme from A Farewell to Arms, and reflect on the lesson you learned from the personal experience. Use critical thinking and separate the “Hollywood” component of the movie from the actual message Hemingway is trying to relay. The essay must focus on one of these themes:
Reality versus fantasy
Self versus duty
The “lesson learned” should explain an impact on your decision-making and/or critical thinking in a positive way. The essay’s thesis statement and body contents should refer to A Farewell to Arms and clearly state the connection. The conclusion should refer back to A Farewell to Arms too. The essay should be 1 typed page in length and include essay structure with an introduction, body and conclusion paragraphs. Proofread and edit carefully for correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
