Reflection is an integral part of the learning process. It allows us to learn more about ourselves and how we learn, but it also aids us in improving academic skills. Consider sports teams that watch film of the previous night’s game. They’re able to identify mistakes and correct them at practice. Looking at a failed math test can have the same result if we help students to notice “Oh! I forget to carry the one every time I borrow!” Then, we can look back on the learning process as well, and help students discern which activities worked for well for them and which ones didn’t.
