Having students reflect on their performance and relationships to content is important in helping them develop key critical thinking and metacognitive skills.
This resource provides seven key questions for students to reflect upon and answer at the end of a unit of study. These questions are meant to be employed after a culminating assessment of some type that wraps up a unit (test, exam, project, portfolio, etc.) This resource may be used in any discipline.
Giving students credit for answering this set of questions is easy. Each of the five questions in "Part A" can be worth 10 points, while the two questions in "Part B," which require more writing and extended analysis, can be worth 25 points.
Posing these "End of Unit Feedback" questions consistently will help your students develop important habits of mind. Using such reflection questions will also help you meet standards for highly effective teaching in your own evaluation.
