Writing Reflectively in Math and Science … really? Whatever for?

 webeventlogoDate: April 22, 2015

Time: 8:00 pm EDT

 

Description: 

Kerry, Audrey and Peggy will present their experiences with their students’ reflective writing, in both math and science classes. The benefits of reflective writing for elementary and secondary levels will be discussed from the points of view of the students (self-regulated learning) and the teacher (formative assessment). This presentation will focus on the pedagogy of reflective practice, as opposed to any specific tool(s), but will include many exemplars from a range of tools, such as Twitter, Voicethread, blogs, googledocs, padlet, and epearl (digital portfolio).

Presenters: Kerry Cule, Audrey McLaren, Peggy Drolet
