✪ The value of reflection ✪
The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.
—Mark Van Doren
Teachers who promote reflective classrooms ensure that students are fully engaged in the process of making meaning. They organise instruction so that students are the producers, not just the consumers, of knowledge. To best guide children in the habits of reflection, these teachers approach their role as that of "facilitator of meaning making."
In the role of facilitator, the teacher acts as an intermediary between the learner and the learning, guiding each student to approach the learning activity in a strategic way. The teacher helps each student monitor individual progress, construct meaning from the content learned and from the process of learning it, and apply their learning to other purposeful contexts and settings. Learning becomes a continual process of engaging the mind that transforms the mind.
In this tool kit of student self-reflection you will find some great creative resources for your classroom. Each resource is adaptive across the KLAs. Thankyou for your purchase from Miss Boyd’s Classroom ☺
