Wow. We are really like minded. I have started reflections this year also. I gave the first one after my first assessment. I asked the students to identify where they performed well and where they didn't. I also asked why they thought they did or didn't do well and how I can help them have a better understanding of the standards we cover. I have used some guided prompts for it now but my hope is that as the year moves on I can just have a few questions and they can fill in the reflection with no guidance. I also would like to use it more frequently. Would like their input on my instruction.
Just did my first reflection sheet of the school year. Making students reflect on their practice will hopefully lead them to think about how they learn better ... and how I can respond to their needs, too.
