What reflection means
Reflection is about students becoming aware of their own thinking processes, and being able to make those transparent to others. It enables assessment of the "why" and "how" of the learning, and what needs to be done as a result.
Reflection readily follows on from self or peer assessment. When students and teachers routinely reflect they will be able to easily describe:
★ what is intended to be learnt
★ where they have got to
★ the learning process
★ where they will go next
★ the learning culture in the classroom.
What is included...
★ cover page to begin a journal
★ reflection quections
★ learning goal support sheets (lots of options!)
