Reflection is an important step in the process of learning.
Using this worksheet you will be able to help students develop a growth mindset instead of a static mindset. A growth mindset allows students to think of their failures or challenges with education as a stepping stone, not a final destination. In this reflection students will analyze their successes (what they are doing well) and their "not yet's" or struggles with learning. Students will also look at their mistakes and determine what their mistakes taught them about learning. They will use this information as a catalyst to drive improvement for the future.
Quadrant 1: Success
Quadrant 2: "Not Yet's"
Quadrant 3: Reflection
Quadrant 4: Growth
Finally, students will compose a well-written reflection paragraph using their brainstorm notes. This reflection will help students to not only think about ways to improve week by week, but also serves as a way to increase opportunities for students to write analytically.
