In Weeks 3-5 you were directed to keep a professional work (Please refer to Week 2 for a review of instructions). Now you will write a journal response paper. You will review your work entries and create a short reflective work from some of your entries on what you have learned so far and how you have applied that learning. Your work should include your experiences, observations, and key concepts. This assignment will be a Turnitin paper of 2 – 3 pages, not including the title page.
Your paper should be formatted in APA style. Include at least one (1) peer-reviewed source related to course material taken in your academic program and scholarly work
