LC Module: Writing Reflections

“This (reflection) project provided evidence that supports the idea that guided student reflection on a daily basis helps students in their achievement of the learning goals for a unit of study as well as their self-confidence in attaining those learning goals. In terms of increased achievement, students in the treatment unit showed a greater gain from pre-test to post-test than in the non-treatment unit. Students also commented positively when interviewed that refection helped them achieve the learning goals by helping them to remember the information and track their progress better. Students also gained self-confidence through reflection.” (Grotbo, 2014)
“Yinger and Clark (1981) believe that reflection results written down are more powerful than reporting them orally. “The ability to reflect is a learned behavior that is cultivated by the individual over a period of time.” (Clark, 2011)
