Reflection: Student Self-Assessment Reflecting on 1st Semester and Setting Goals for 2nd Semester - Section 5: Applying Knowledge: Writing a Letter to the Teacher


Primarily in these letters I am looking for students to share their critique of the class.  Students needed to demonstrate that they to present the relevant content in the appropriate tone.  The first letter contains quality content but incorrect tone and the second letter had both appropriate content and tone. Overall the letters are more self-reflection that constructive criticism of the class. I think the students relied to heavily on the information from the presentations instead of looking beyond the topics I chose for the presentation.
