    Learn How to Reflect on a Project

    Learn How to Reflect on a Project

    Overview

    Students learn how to self-reflect on research skills and evaluate a completed project. 

    Introduction

    Teacher Tip

    Read How Can Schools Develop Self-Directed Learners from Phi Delta Kappan. Think about the ways you can incorporate reflection and journaling in the learning process. As you use R4S, what questions will you ask your students along the way to assist them in the learning process? 

    Reflection happens throughout the inquiry process. No doubt you reflected on the topic you selected, the guiding questions you developed, and the sources you used. At times, you may have made changes to your topic, questions, and search terms based on your reflection. In this final module, you will reflect on your inquiry skills and the strength of your final project. 

     

    Learn How to Engage in Reflective Writing

    Teacher Tip

    Work with your school librarian to assist you in determining ways for students to share their reflections on the research process. Librarians are trained in collecting, organizing, preserving, and disseminating information. If you do not have a school librarian in your school, contact your local public library and/or your local college library for assistance in teaching students the reflection and curation process needed as students prepare for their future. 

    Throughout this process, you have spent a lot of time thinking about what other people have said. You read academic journals, magazine articles, and websites. You reflected on how the information you discovered answered your research questions and used this learning to develop your final paper or project.
