From Drudgery to Fun - Purposeful Reflection in the Classroom
Limited Capacity seats available

Oftentimes, when we ask students for "reflection", they hear a word with a hard sound in the middle which has the syllables of reflection but sounds like profanity. The goal of this session is to refine classroom strategies to make reflection purposeful, meaningful, and fun for IB and non-IB classes.
