Looking for some student reflection questions?
Do you need student reflection questions? Then I found the perfect worksheet for you on Twitter. I watch social media closely and it's my job to share some of the hot topics on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and other outlets that teachers, principals, students, and parents are contributing.
After assigning a project or other large assignment, it's a good idea to hand out some student reflection questions. These questions ask the students to think about the project they just finished. It helps them think critically about the project and helps you gauge where your class is overall and the success and failures of the assignment. Dr. Anael Alston posted a great list of student reflection questions on his Twitter account. These questions apply to just about any subject area or lesson, or you can tweak them a bit to make a better fit.
You can see those questions below.
You can break these questions into a few general categories. Many of these questions deal with the student's successes and failures regarding the project in question. Other questions ask about how this project relates to learning outside of the object discussed in the worksheet, challenging your students to make outside connections. A few also ask about the process the student went through to complete the project.
What questions would you add? Do you ever ask your students questions like these? Would you leave off any of these questions?
