Reflection leads to deeper learning. Stepping back from ones work to analyze successes, failures, and patterns helps readers and writers understand past performance and move forward. It makes learning stickier. Reflection helps students build connections + make meaning.
But it can be challenging to move students past simplistic reflections like “It was good”, “It was bad”, or “It was okay because I got a B.”
In this on-demand course, Rebekah will walk you through a variety of routines and protocols that can be used to help build a culture of reflection in your reading and writing classroom. From brief reflections on individual assignments to larger end-of-term reflections, you will get practical tools to help your students reflect in a way that will help them create meaningful goals that will create engagement, intrinsic accountability, and move their reading + writing forward.
