Design project reflection papers

Lesson Plan Published 11/11/13 Last updated on 3/2/20

A reflection paper is used to capture reactions, feelings and analysis of an experience in a more personal way than in a research essay or formal presentation. Use this activity to introduce reflection papers and how your students can use them to reflect on the process of creating a design project by identifying areas for improvement for their project and process.

The rubric seems weak. I'd like to see assessment points for a wider variety of points.

HI Michelle,

Thanks for the feedback. Can you be a bit more specific and perhaps give examples of the kinds of points you'd like to see?
