Structuring Student Reflection: Opinion Polls and Reflection Papers
This paper outlines an assignment structure that uses opinion polls and reflection papers. One noticeable benefit of this assignment structure is that it gets students to do philosophy. These assignments together require students to reflect on the beliefs and their reasons for those beliefs by making them to outline those reasons. After the relevant material has been covered, students retake the opinion poll to see how their beliefs have changed. Depending on their post-unit opinion poll result, they are then required to write one of four paper assignments .
