Our goal is to have all Curry students participate in this Reflection Activity!
Through the use of Reflection writing we hope that you have a chance to:
-gauge your progress within your individual classes
-determine what works/does not work for you as a student
-make connections of the concepts taught in class to the “real world” or global society

“It seems like a no-brainer: We all reflect on our own experiences and apply that knowledge next time, don’t we?
We might do this in our day-to-day experiences such as learning how to ride a bike or touching a hot stove for the first time, but in education, we don’t use this tool often enough.
Reflection after an experience is a natural part of learning. https://sites.google.com/site/reflection4learning/why-reflect “What did I do well? What can I do better next time?” By writing down your experiences and reflecting on them, you move from the more abstract world of “Yeah, I would like to do better on my next test,” to the more concrete world of goal setting. ”
