Reflective Essay

I have never written a reflective essay. I am not sure how to set it up and if a cover page is required. How do I write one with the following parameters:

1. Descriptions of how you feel you improved your knowledge, skills, abilities, and yourself in this session through this course.
2. Evaluation of the work you did during the session for the class and explanations of ways you could have performed better.

The course objectives were:

2. Describe food safety principles, and the role of vectors in public health protection (Module 2).
3. Describe the role of a multi-disciplinary team in reducing the impact of air pollution on human health (Module 2).
