    I would never have thought about having the students write a reflection of their learning but I see this as a way for students to build deeper understanding and meaning. I really like the ideas that Michael presented with the structure including the sentence starters, connecting phrases, etc. I also like that he will do the first one together as a class and if he sees the need will continue as a whole class writing consolidation/reflection until they understand what he is requiring.

    I LOVE the idea of providing students with sentence frames and “mortar” language to help support their consolidation! If a student is completely lost at the end of the lesson, those hints won’t be enough to help them “fake it” through the reflection, but if they understand the key takeaway – and are just struggling with the language piece – these hints would be more than enough to help them effectively communicate their learning.

    I’m liking this idea of providing a template for students to fill out after a math task or lesson. I think every math class may be a bit much, but certainly every 2nd lesson or twice a week or something like that would be very helpful.
