In American culture, men are trained not to reveal their emotions because it is a way of being vulnerable. Many male students can lose points on this assignment because they don’t write enough. If length is an issue, pull back and consider the larger societal issues or an academic issue. For instance, if in a physical therapy class you learn how to treat patients with disabilities and then spend the day in a wheelchair and have to reflect on it, you could speculate what it would be like to be there all the time—in other words, give compassion toward others instead of worrying about writing about yourself. You could also reflect on the difference between your readings for the class and the experience you had—whether the readings need to be modified.
