Hello everyone!

  • How will I know if my students understood the concept?
  • Is there something that I need to work on?
  • What went on well today?
  • Shall I continue this way of teaching?

If these are few questions that come across every time when you complete your lesson then you are at the right place.

For all those who aren’t familiar with the term reflection it just simply means a process where students describe their learning, how it changed, and how it might relate to future learning experiences.

Is it only the students who reflect? The answer is NO! We as teachers also need to reflect on our methods of teaching where we can work on ourselves and find better solutions and outcomes.

Let’s come out of the traditional way of teaching and asking questions to students. What next? Does this way always work? Does everybody feel save and secure to share their views in front of everyone? Are you giving your students agency?

As a teacher it is an important aspect as it will nurture the child. To understand how we can help students we should first know where they are facing difficulties. And that where reflection sheet are useful. There are different types of reflection strategies that can be used like self reflection, behavioural reflection, unit reflection, end of term reflection, field trip review and reflection sheets and so on.
