Students can choose from one of the below options to meet the FWT Reflective Project requirement:
- Reflective Essay. For more than 80 years the FWT essay has been how students have traditionally reflected on their FWT experiences. With updated optional prompts, this is an ongoing opportunity to write creatively and compellingly about your winter term. See Reflective Essay Guidelines for details. Due on February 26, 2016, this option is available to all students. Note: All Memorial grant recipients are required to write a reflective essay as outlined in the Grant Application Guidelines.
- Interview. Practice your interviewing skills and reflect on different perspectives connected to the work you’ve been up to. See Interview Guidelines for details. Due on February 26, 2016, this option is available to all students, except FWT Memorial Grant recipients.
- Blog. Keep a video/audio/and or written blog this FWT. See Blog Guidelines for details. Weekly entries required throughout FWT, with a final summative entry due by February 26, 2016. This option is available to all students, except FWT Memorial Grant recipients.
- Video. Create a three- to five-minute video that chronicles an important aspect of your FWT experience and write an abbreviated essay about the process. See Video Guidelines for details. Due March 11, 2016. This option is available to all students, except FWT Memorial Grant recipients.
