Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Introduction to Figurative Language, Part II - Section 3: Did They Get It?


I'm writing a reflection about reflection.  Mind. Blown.

That being said, I think it's a testament to how important reflection is to the learning process that it is an integral part of the Master Teacher Project.  I know that my teaching has become stronger because I have had an opportunity to reflect on each day's lesson.

Students benefit from this process too.  So often our students want to write and say what they think we want to hear.  What really rocks my kids' worlds is the idea that what I want them to write is an honest reflection of their learning and questions.  It makes them better students.

Though I have had professional disagreements with my colleagues about the importance of note-taking in class, I know that none of us disagree about how students are empowered when they think about their thinking.  This is Common Core.  Can you take information and ideas and make them your own?  Can you articulate what you think about concepts and then explain your thoughts, using evidence, in a way that is accessible for a reader?

It all starts with reflection!
