Bi-weekly Learning Reflections
For each bi-weekly period, the student will need to write a reflection (about 750-1000 words) on what he learned and acquired during the two weeks. Content of the reflection must be critical, not just a summary, of the readings listed for the bi-weekly period. In particular the student should be able to write about how the assigned readings fit in the larger literature, what important questions address, how it moves the field forward, add what new knowledge it creates.
