Reflective Essay!

Recommended Posts

Alrighty, so my CAS reflective essay is due next Monday, but I'm a bit unsure of what to write! The CAS coordinator gave all the students at my school a sheet with a long list of questions that was "supposed to prompt our thinking" but it all seems rather vague...Does anyone know what IB is looking for when you write your CAS essay? Do they have a marking scheme?

Thanks!

I dont think that they have one. I have the same sheets with the questions you have to answer, but i think you just fill em in and give it to your CAS coordinator.

Basically as long as you make an essay of somekind, you'll pass. There is no mark scheme, and it won't be evaluated, it won't show on your diploma when you get it.

Yeah my coordinator told me it should be about 600 words. We got a CAS package with some examples and basically I just followed the example. Talked a bit about how CAS has affected me and summarized what I learned through my activities/experiences.

does anyone know when these essay's are due?

I think around april of the second-year. Though its not really something to worry about, the aim of it is for you reflect on what you've gained from cas etc...

It's quite useless, I'd say...

Mine is due Monday (tomorrow) [today already :D ], and I didn't do it yet. Will write it in one hour, I hope. And my main hope is that I will not be the one of the chosen ones, whose CAS journals will be sent to IB :)

And again, it's how IB tries to make its students to have a life. Good idea, bad approach.

Good luck to everyone with this.
