Comments on: The Purposeful Pause: 10 Reflective Questions to Ask Mid-Lesson Education on the Edge Thu, 18 Apr 2019 16:00:27 +0000 hourly 1 By: Tracy Watanabe Tue, 31 Mar 2015 04:19:27 +0000 Hi Angela

Thank you for sharing quality ideas for reflecting during a lesson, as a strategy for developing a growth mindset. I was in a recent workshop with Sarah Brown Wessling, and she had us reflect on some Teaching Channel Videos by asking the very questions you have in #5: “What am I doing that’s helping you learn? What am I doing that’s interfering with your ability to learn?” While Sarah’s workshop had educators looking at teacher moves, and student learning, I hadn’t thought about posing those very same questions to students. Thanks for this idea!

I also like using some of the ideas from Making Thinking Visible to help students (and educators) reflect on their learning.

Kind regards,
Tracy Watanabe
