Transcript of The Reflective School by Peter Pappas

of thinking
Think of Bloom
and try reflecting
about your progress
with greater rigor
... foster meaningful experiences that
provoke reflection.

Student: Were the strategies I used well matched to the assignment?

Teacher: What have I learned about working with my strengths and weaknesses?

Principal: How am I progressing as a leader?
What are my next steps?
Student: How can I best use my strengths?

Teacher: What ideas do I have to improve our school?
