In order to make students more accountable for their own actions, I use this reflection form to promote a positive learning environment. After a warning or a serious disruption, I put this half sheet of paper on the students desk, the front side with instructions and the reverse side with lines, to prompt students to exit class and reflect in the hallway. Students are given two basic options: apologize and come up with an action plan to ensure it won't occur in the future or defend why they exhibited the type of behavior that landed them in the hallway. This allows learning to continue in the classroom at the moment and gives me time to have an individual conversation with students before they can reenter the classroom. They also serve as informal write-ups, since they can be collected and used during conferences with parents or administration.
