Reflective Questions that tie the Past to the Future
To help guide reflection, I often ask three simple questions that tie the past with the future: What? So What? and Now What? First, we look at what has been collected, or the artifacts selected to demonstrate a particular outcome, goal or standard. The second step is to discuss what these artifacts show about what has been learned, or my current reflections about my knowledge and skills. Finally, I ask Now What? What direction do I want to take in the future? What are my future learning goals?
