My Body, Myself Reflection 1
Due Date: Wednesday, January 16, 2019
The goal of the first paper in The Science of Body Image is to get you thinking about your
current understanding of body image, including what it is and how it develops. In your
reflection paper, please address the following questions:
• What does the term “body image” mean to you?
• What have been the biggest influences on your body image?
• What do you think contributes to the development of body image disturbance, and
what contributes to the development of a positive body image?
Please also feel free to include other thoughts about body image. Know also that you do not
have to share anything with which you are not comfortable. Though I would encourage you
write a personal reflection about the topic, if you would prefer to speak more generally
about influences on body image, that is okay too.
Your reflection will be graded based on the extent to which you thoughtfully address each
of the questions listed above, adhere to the guidelines for the assignment with regard to
length and formatting, and follow standard conventions of writing.
Formatting: Your reflection should be 2-3 pages in length. It should be typed in 12-point
Times New Roman font and the text should be double spaced. Please use 1” margins all
around. Note that if you are using Microsoft Word, you will need to adjust the default
formatting. The default in Word typically includes a small amount of extra space between
paragraphs and uses a 1.25” margin on the left-hand side. You need to change these
settings to conform to the assignment. Please also use the following heading at the top of
your assignment:
My Body, Myself Reflection 1
Submission Guidelines: Reflections will be collected at the start of class on the due date.
Late submissions will be penalized 10% (one letter grade) for each 24-hour period that
elapses after the deadline. Please be sure to allow adequate time to print your essay before
the start of class.
