Assessment 3: Reflective Essay FAQs
What am I supposed to do?
You are required to write a reflective essay on your lived experiences, personal and professional values. You can do this by covering topics such as:
a). Privilege (invisible and visible forms)
b). Oppression, which can involve race or ethnic background, gender, class and disability (invisible and visible forms)
In order to undertake this reflection ensure that you refer to and make use of concepts such as intersectionality, critical reflection, whiteness and privilege that have been covered in the course readings.
Should I use the questions/themes guide in the assessment task?
The questions provided in the assessment details are prompts for you to think about, but should not be used as sub-headings to write your reflective essay.
How many and which course readings should I refer to?
In this subject we are training you to be scholars, and to adopt a scholarly approach to writing. In general, the more peer-reviewed references used, the greater evidence there is of wide reading and understanding of the topic. The ability to manage and integrate a large number of sources in your writing also develops your critical thinking.
Some samples of the readings that you can use are:
Baltra-Ulloa (2014) ‘Incorporating whiteness into the teaching and learning of anti-racist social work’, in How Kee, Martin, J & Ow R (eds.) Cross-Cultural social work: local and global, South Yarra, Melbourne, Palgrave Macmillan.
Monahan, M (2014) ‘The concept of privilege: a critical appraisal’, South African Journal of Philosophy, 33(10), 73-83.
Case. K (2017) ‘Towards an inter-sectional pedagogy model; engaged learning for social justice’, in Case, K (ed.) Intersectional Pedagogy: Complicating Identity and Social Justice, New York, Taylor & Francis.
Dominelli, L (1997) ‘Introduction: Anti-racist social work- a critical issue for white people’, in Dominelli, L Anti-racist social work, 2edn. Houndmills, Basingstoke, Hampshire, Palgrave Macmillan.
Abrams, L. S., & Mojo, J. A. (2009). Critical race theory and cultural competence dilemma in social work education. Journal of Social Work Education, 45(2), 245- 261.
Fook, J. (2010) ‘Reflective practice and critical reflection’, in Handbook of Theory for Practice Teachers: A New Updated Edition, ed. J. Lishman, Jessica Kingsley, London
Walter, M, Taylor, S. & Habibis, D. (2011) ‘How white is social work in Australia?’, Australian Social Work, vol. 64, no. 1, pp. 6-19.
Ahmed, S (2004) Declarations of Whiteness: The Non-Performativity of Anti-Racism’, borderlands-ejournal, 3(2).
Note:  that some sources can be merely mentioned (not discussed in detail), for example, when two of more authors make the same theoretical point you can cite them together. You should find it easy to obtain 15-20 peer reviewed sources. If you are having trouble seek the assistance of a Librarian or LSA.
Will writing aboutmy experiences or my reflections be enough?
No you will need to situate or locate your experiences by connecting them withthe concepts covered in the course readings.
Does the reflective essay use TURNIT IN?
Yes. You will need to paraphrase and write in your own words when you are using other sources, and cite using APA referencing style accurately.
