Students and teachers look at their work and ask questions designed to foster thoughtful, deliberate practice.
Students and teachers engage in reflection to consider their growth and push their thinking. Reflective practices in education foster cycles of inquiry and frame the culture and values of the school and community.
Every student is supported to develop their identity, cultivate self-understanding, and know themself as a core component of educational experiences grounded in their community.
Student and educator reflections are based on individual portfolios of student learning. Students lead the process by curating their work and considering what they have learned, how they experienced the learning process, and how they can tune their learning for the future.
True reflection leads to action. Facilitate and model metacognitive work by engaging in reflection throughout PBL practices through exit cards, journaling, or self-assessments. Students and teachers unpack important decisions in what, how, and why they make, do, practice, and learn.
Together, students, educators, and community members examine the processes, structures, and systems of teaching and learning, and each makes important contributions to all parts of the process. Students, educators, and community members work together to improve learning for all students.
