    3. The rest of the journal entry is your reflection. Be specific in your reflection and refer to aspects of the activity or parts of the article. You could touch on some of the following points:
      1. What you learned.
      2. What was important and why.
      3. Who else should know what you learned and why.
      4. Why it matters.
      5. What it makes you think of, something similar and how.
    4. Journal entries should be about 250-300 words each, including your summary.
