“How can I develop authentic reflective learners?” take #2

On Friday I had left school unsure about how to inspire my students to use their bubble catchers in such a way that it could lead to them becoming authentic reflective learners, with the ultimate aim of leading them to take ownership of their learning.

Synchronicity…

Stephanie was wondering about the same question! A colleague, without any prompting, forwarded a link to Stephanie’s blog post
Inspired…

I read her post and grew more and more excited as I believed I had found a way to help my students to understand and become excited about using their bubble catchers.

These are a few of their responses…

“The bubbles are like our thoughts coming our of our minds and growing.”

“Sometimes our thoughts get forgotten just like the bubbles that pop.”

“Our bubble catcher books will help us to remember our thoughts.” (if we write them down)

Excited…

Yes! A connection has been made and we can now revisit the purpose/ aims of using the bubble catcher.
