  • On lined paper with your name and period, respond to the following. Be sure to turn in a paper copy and to upload a digital copy (photo) to your DSN. Use the following prompts to guide your reflection:
  • Provide several sentences about your learning in science this year. Be specific. These should be things that you would like quoted as a part of report card comments about you.
  • How has your thinking changed? What has been the most amazing thing that you learned? What ideas have you found particularly challenging? Why do you think they are challenging?
  • Talk about your learning habits AND about the ideas and practices in science.
  • Refer to your digital science notebook–to what extent do you keep it complete and up-to-date. Describe the way you use your DSN in projects and assessments.
  • How do you approach an assessment project? For example, how did you make sure that you tried to show how the conservation of mass applied to the reaction you examined and how did you make sure you explained that in your final product?
  • What would you do differently in your assessment project if you were to start over? Explain.
  • How important is it to you to become good at investigation and scientific thinking? Explain.
