To keep questions and prompts short and simple. Layer and build on questions gradually to reflect on and explore more complex ideas.

Remote Teaching and Learning Tip:

  • Use breakout rooms to have simultaneous sharing in smaller groups.
  • A google form can be an easy way to get feedback.
    • Try to make it anonymous and short.
    • Try to add questions with poll answers so students can pick A/B/C/D, rather than having to type out an answer to each question.
    • To give more space for student voice, include as the last question: “Is there anything else you’d like to share? Please do so here.”

Remote Teaching and Learning Tip:

Provide alternatives to open-ended writing prompts online.

  • Students can record a video of themselves responding to the reflection questions, either alone or in conversation with an adult.
  • Students can use emojis to respond to each question, or the survey can be set up with multiple choice answers using visuals to express ideas.
  • Try using a tool like a Word Cloud or Jamboard for students to submit reflections.
