What better way to make students accountable for their own learning than to have them reflect midway through each quarter about their academic progress in your class. This Microsoft Word document allows you to customize it to meet your school's schedule, whether it's by 9 weeks or semesters, etc. The student has to write down their grade, what they will do to improve or maintain the grade, and what they'd like the teacher to do. Simply take this sheet at the beginning of the school year and staple it to the front inside cover of their student file folder. That way when you pass back assignments to file, it gives you a great opportunity to have them reflect on their graded work and current grade in your class.
