I encourage my students to reflect on their actions and study habits throughout the year. I also encourage them to periodically set goals for themselves. I see this as a life skill and take it seriously. In the past I have had them write up (<1pg) a mini-essay on their goals and how successfully they are meeting them, and how they view their participation/effort in class. I like the assignment because not only does it get them to be reflective, but it lets me see a different side of them through writing. I'm looking for some fresh ideas. Does anyone else have a similar assignment in their class?
