[WLO: 3] [CLOs: 1, 2, 3]
For your Final Project, you will reflect on the experiences in this course and create an ebook to share this reflection. Reflection is an important part of any class, but especially those in which you may be sharpening your skills. While you knew how to read when you started this class, how has reading changed for you now that you are at the end of the course? Do you find yourself looking at reading differently or thinking differently when you read? How so? If not, why not?
Prior to beginning work on this final project, review the following:
This project will show you have achieved all the learning outcomes for this course.
