Description:

Use the process of reflection to cement strategies students use for learning. This is proven meta-cognition strategy that helps students learn how to learn or problem solve. This process also works for teachers as the reflect on the days of teaching that went exceptionally well. It is also used by business leaders. The examples are for science, but the technique applies to all disciplines. I have used it with elementary and high school students including special ed students.

Reviewer Comments:

This project-based resource connects students’ science curriculum (human body systems) with their own personal health decisions (engaging in risky behaviors). Students will create a Public Service Announcement (PSA) to demonstrate their learning and to try and convince others to make healthy choices. This assignment would be appropriate for the middle and high school levels. Overall, the project is very engaging as it is open-ended and allows for student creativity. This open-endedness, however, also makes the final project somewhat difficult to assess. Although there are a number of standards listed for the project, the final rubric only addresses a few broad assessment areas. Throughout, there are references to “guidelines,” “quizzes” and other materials, which would need to be developed before this resource could be fully implemented in the classroom.
