End of Year Reflection
Provide students the opportunity to reflect on all of the units that occurred over the course of the school year. This can help guide your planning for the next year. Below, you can download an example but if you click here, you can copy and edit your own.
Here is a quick self-reflection students can complete at the end of a lesson or perhaps even at the end of a unit. Three questions where students have the option of writing or drawing their responses. If it works best for the student, you can also scribe the answers for the student(s).
