Here is a hyperlink to a brief review of the difference between reflective and academic writing styles.
In academic writing, APA style, and in reflective writing, and throughout this semester in VoiceThread
discussions, avoid the use of second-person language (you, your, you’re, your’s).
This paper includes reflective writing, an expression of your own thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
When writing in this style, avoid the use of second-person language such as “you”, “your”, “you’re”. The
writing is about your own experience, not that of the reader. Using second-person language distances
the writer from “owning” their own experience and projects the experience onto the reader. It is
especially important for this course that you, the student, use your own voice from your own
experience. Here is an example of the difference between first and second person writing:
“Well, you know, when you get hit by a car and run off the road you get really super angry and want to
hunt down the person who ran you off the road and destroy them.”
Notice how the above statement may not reflect your experience (you, the reader) or how you believe
you would react in a similar situation. For some of you, it might! But hopefully not. This is how a
reflective writing assignment would look if I actually had that experience myself:
“Well, last week, I was driving on a country road and my car was hit from behind I got run off the road
from the impact. I got really angry and got back on the road and tried to catch up with the other car to
try to hurt whoever did that to me.”
This statement is personalized and descriptive from the perspective of the writer and does not project
their thoughts, feelings, or experience, onto the reader.
For this course, writing that is not reflective in nature will be considered academic writing. In academic
writing, the writer uses existing research or data to support their thoughts and beliefs. When referring
to existing research or data, it is important to give credit to the author of the material that is being
quoted. The use of first and second-person language is not used. The writing style is detached. The
academic language base is referred to as “Standard American English”. Notice that in some cultures, the
use of first and second-person language is common. There is controversy in academia currently due to
linguistic differences and the value of honoring diversity, equity, and inclusion. The emphasis of this
course is on content; however, the context is within an academic setting. The instructor and Think Tank
are both resources if you have any questions or need support for writing assignments with these
expectations in mind.
