A reflection homework cites your reactions, feelings and analysis of an experience in a more personal way than in a formal research or analytical. As such you should include your thoughts and reactions to the film you viewed. You can present what you observed in the film (objective discussion) and how what you viewed made you feel and explain why (subjective discussion). You also can use the reflection  to analyze what you have experienced.

Remember, this should not read like a book report, which just recounts what you read. It is much more important that you focus on what you learned from the film and how you would incorporate concepts that you took away into the way you view or do things or think about Narrative Health Communication in the future (e.g., what important contribution does the film you viewed make to the communication field and narrative health communication specifically). You can include personal experience in a reflection, however, do not depend on them; base your reactions and reflections on the material from the film, the current readings you’ve been assigned, and how they collectively frame narratives and storytelling through the vehicle of communication.


  1. Include the follow on your word doc.: COVER PAGE w/ NAME, COURSE NUMBER AND FILM TITLE, DATE
  2. Make sure you use complete sentences organized in paragraph format for your summary. Write your summary to briefly explain the key points of the film as if you were presenting them to someone who had not viewed it, however, make sure this isn’t the core part of the homework. In order to receive full credit your page must be thorough, accurate and backed up by specific examples from your readings.
  3. There is no right or wrong way to write or organize the reflection. Use your own words. In addition to your brief summary, address a few of the following question in your writing assignment.


1. What was most impactful about the health narratives that were presented in the film

2. What aspects of the film helped you shift your thinking about the way that narratives and/or stories help unpack the basic aspects of human life.

3. Using at least two of your readings and ask – “how does this film help me unpack the reading(s). For example, Hinyard and Kreuter (2007) say that “a narrative is a cohesive and coherent story with an identifiable beginning, middle and end that provides information about scene, characters, and conflict; raises unanswered questions or unresolved conflict; and provides resolution” (p. 778). Their definition is extremely useful as I think about the Rabbit Proof Fences and how the characters… [THIS IS MY EXAMPLE YOU SHOULD USE THE ARTICLES YOU PICK TO EXPLAIN AND/OR UNPACK WHAT YOU’VE VIEW]

Reflection for this homework:

This report should be a minimum of 750-1,000 words [2 – 3 pages in length]. It should not be a simple summary of the film – I’ve already viewed it; instead, it should be an analysis of the issues and recommendations in the film that are grounded in Intercultural Communication theory(ies) and concepts from your current chapter readings. So most importantly, use the current readings to support your observations citing when you use content from the chapter or reading provided.
