A reflective piece is different from other types of assignment in that you are reflecting on something you have done, rather than putting forward a persuasive argument or trying to find a solution. In a reflective assignment, therefore, you will probably want to use less source material than in a discursive essay. However, some reflective assignments require that you both reflect on your own practice and appraise it in relation to theory, and so in this case you will be using sources for the specific purpose of reflecting on this link. If and when you use and integrate sources into a reflective essay, you should do so in the same way as for other types of academic writing.
