A writen reflection is: describe your personal response to a scenario (experiences, situations, events or new information) in 3 or 5 paragraphs.
Reflect on WHAT the scenario deals with and HOW the students deal with it.
What can I discuss in my reflection?
- Your perceptions of the content of the scenario.
- Any questions you have.
- Experiences, ideas and observations you have had, and how they relate to the scenario.
- What you found confusing, inspiring, difficult, interesting and why.
- Possibilities, speculations, hypotheses or solutions.
- Alternative interpretations or different perspectives on the scenario.
- How their new ideas challenge what you already know.
- What you want to explore next in terms of thoughts and actions.
So reflect on how they:
- solved a problem;
- reached a conclusion;
- found an answer;
- reached a point of understanding.
It’s also helpful to make comparisons and connections between what you are learning and your prior knowledge and experience and your prior assumptions. So:
- Describe WHAT they have dealt with;
- Describe HOW they have dealt with it.
- Describe what that means to you;
- Formulate 3 questions for the Scenario Writers.
