Reflection: Lesson Planning Evaluating My Learning - Section 2: First Reflection


It might seem that this reflection might be better on paper. I chose the white boards by design. Often students believe they have done very well on a test. They feel confident and often do not recall what their testing day was like. They know the expectation is that they try hard so they feel like they have. For example, I had a student who was sure that he had scored an Exceeds. However, he rushed through the test and took very little time reading and rereading. His score reflected that, he fell in Approaches.

The use of the white board lets a student "erase" their past test. The reality check is sometimes hard on students, a white board lets them move away from the old and set goals to do better on the next one.
