How to Write a Report on Your Education Experience

Save

If you've just completed a special school project -- such as starting an after-school club, creating a student alliance with a charity in your town or even taking a new pilot course at your school -- you might be asked to write a report on your educational experience. As with any other writing project, this one requires planning and organization, so begin by reviewing your notes from the experience and developing a theme for your report. Think of this assignment as the equivalent of a narrative essay, in which you tell a story with purpose, detail and clarity.

Shape the Report

  • Begin your report with an overview of the experience: its intent, what specifically it entailed and its duration. After outlining the pertinent details, craft the story of your experience. Write a compelling thesis statement -- the central idea that underscored the entire experience, for example: “The professional journalists who visited our mass communications class were the highlight of the experience, because they gave me valuable insights about the workings of daily newspapers, television and radio.” A statement like this gives your report shape and direction. Follow the thesis statement with examples illustrating what you learned from the journalists.

Include Reflective Insights

  • Frame the rest of your report around reflective elements. Trigger your creative juices by shedding light on: your most and least favorite part of the experience; whether the experience met your expectations and how; constructive comments about the strengths and weaknesses of the experience; what you would change if you could; and how you have changed as a result of the experience. Focus on the most meaningful and poignant revelations of the experience, and your report will make a grand impression.
