This formatted document gives students the structure to reflect on their final project for the semester (for my students, this project counted as their final exam grade, along with this writing activity), and also facilitates some reflection on a project that either particularly challenged them or a project they felt especially successful on.
Be sure to modify the project list within the document for students so it coordinates with what you did throughout the year/semester. This will help jog students' memory.
**Note: I gave students a heads up on this writing activity before they had to do it and instructed them to think about a project that was a challenge and one that was a success and WHY, so that they had more thoughtful responses when it came time to actually reflect.
This activity was very telling for my students and also for me as a teacher. I ended up with some extremely valuable feedback on my units and projects, along with my techniques of teaching. Students finished the course with a chance to reflect overall and felt more fulfilled upon completion of the course.
