Reflecting...
What worked for you about this IIE?
What lingering questions do you have about it?
What would you change, how would you improve it?
What will stay with you from this IIE beyond your experience today?
Think of someone to whom you owe a great deal, for opening a door for you or for moving road-blocks.  Maybe this person has no idea what he/she has done.  Maybe it seemed incredibly small or insignificant at the time.  Take 5 minutes to write about what this person/these people did for you and why you're grateful.
