Reflection: Rules and Consequences Tour a Crime Lab - Section 2: Explore


At this point in the year, with the end just around the corner, I am working to help students make positive, INDEPENDENT choices related to their health, well-being, and their social/academic standing. I want them to feel empowered to make decisions that are best for themselves. Students will interpret this differently, depending on their maturity level, their personal goals, and quite frankly, their mood on that specific day.

I am working to provide them more freedom to make their own choices, but I am also very quick to help them realize that the consequences of those choices are theirs, and theirs alone. If a student chooses to work with a partner who will socialize the the entire time, I ask them to reevaluate their decision but will not make them choose a different partner. At the end of the lesson, I often have all students reflect (in writing) whether or not their partner was a positive or negative influence in their learning. This requires them to take accountability for their choices, and hopefully, apply the knowledge they received this experience the next time they have a similar decision to make.
