This Gibbs' reflective practice activity is a colourful and fun way to introduce reflective practice to your students. It is targeted for learners aged 14-19 years old, but can be used on younger learners, depending on their level.
This is a 3 step activity:
First of all, learners needs use the first page to identify the Gibbs' cycle and read the description of why we use models of reflection.
Secondly, learners follow each step of the cycle that has been broken down to give a detailed and critical reflection of a situations through using the prompt questions given on each section.
Lastly, the learners now have 6 boxes of reflections for each stage of Gibbs' cycle. They can cut out all these boxes and glue them in order on a separate sheet to form their complete critical reflection (this is optional, you can keep them with the prompts for future learner revision).
I have used this in my current setting to introduce a method of reflection for learners who struggle when being critical rather than just showing descriptive writing. It has been tested on mainstream and SEN learners.
