Reflective writing

With this T4T tutorial, students use writing as a tool to think constructively and insightfully about events, experiences and issues. They develop an understanding of the importance of appreciating the value of 'thinking back,' particularly in writing, about what has happened; recognizing what is required to skillfully reflect on matters in writing; and using a variety of techniques to write effectively. This tutorial includes instructional suggestions for teachers (introducing the strategy, practicing the strategy, reinforcing the strategy, applying the strategy to everyday teaching, and assessing use of the strategy) and resources for students (introductory activities, data charts, student guide and self-assessment rubric).
