slightly longer or shorter. You might, for instance,
have context and ‘so what’ assessment as a single
paragraph or you may feel that they each need
their own. But you should ensure to touch on each
of these areas. Remember, this isn’t an essay, so

The first paragraph of your reflection, then,
should be a ‘reconstruction’ of the central claim – or one
of the central claims – in the text, along with the
