Since starting this reflective learning process with my students, scores on my chapter assessments have increased. It is entirely possible that my students this year are better equipped for my Algebra 2 class (or just smarter) than they have been in the past, but seeing that class averages on tests increased 4 percentage points is still pretty exciting. One takeaway for sure, reflective learning hasn't impeded their progress.
Even though it takes more work and energy from me, I like this reflective learning addition to my teaching. Any reflections of your own on what I'm doing? Or is it enough to say that reflective learning seems like a good thing?
