This document prompts students to reflect on their language-learning habits.
Students read a list of behaviors that support language learning (speaking to peers in Spanish during class, reading or listening to Spanish in their spare time, participating fully in class activities, etc.) and mark Almost Always, Often, or Needs Improvement according to their perception of their performance during the specified time.
The second half of the document asks students open-ended questions prompting further reflection and goal setting.
This document could be used on its own, form part of a portfolio, or serve as a discussion starter for parent-teacher or student-teacher conferences.
This list of behaviors was generated from what I observed among students in my classes.
Some of the questions (on both sides) include the teacher's name-- this document is in .docx format so that the teacher's name can be changed to yours! By editing the text referencing what part of the year we are in, teachers can use this document repeatedly through the year if desired.
The document can be edited to be used in French, Italian, German, etc. courses. This document could also be edited to remove references to AP courses, so that it could be used with university or adult education courses.
