Student ‘Reflection Needs to Be a Habit’ is Part Two in my Education Week series on reflection in the classroom. You might want to start there and at Part One.
And I hope that readers will contribute more.

I’m a big fan of Hannah Arendt and use her work to help students see the importance of reflection. Here are two related previous posts:

Four Levels of Student Reflection is from Faculty Focus.
Why The Brain Benefits From Reflection In Learning is from Teach Thought.
A Mid-Year Reflection for Teachers and Students is by Maurice Elias at Edutopia.
No Time To Think is from The New York Times.
Twelve Alternatives to “How Was Your Day?” is by John Spencer. It’s designed as a list of questions for parents to ask their children, but can easily be adapted by teachers for reflection activities.
Learning By Thinking: How Reflection Improves Performance is from Harvard.
