Name three powerful ways students can reflect on their learning, then discuss closely the one you use most often.
I have to admit, this is a struggle area for me and my students. Most of the reflection that happens occurs when they receive their graded test. I know I need to be better about pushing students to reflect, and teaching them how that reflection is helpful.
Because I feel like I’m not well-versed in this (and I’m really behind on this 30 day challenge), I decided to look at some other blogs from teachers and compile some of their best resources!
Form of the Good (@RESP3CTtheGAME) – Student Self-Evaulation Rubrics
A Collection of Thoughts – Interactive Notebooks, Online Blogs, Online Portfolios.
Reflective Teaching – Socrative, Kaizena, Blogging
Classroom Collective (@classcollect) – Goal Making, I Can Statements, Conferences
Each of these amazing bloggers shared great ways to get students to reflect on their learning. I plan on trying to use some of these ASAP! I love that some are able to be used instantly and that others take a little more work and planning. Overall, I feel like there are so many ways to get students to reflect, I just need to get going on it an not be afraid! Thanks to the other bloggers for doing great work.
