When students get an assessment back it is very common for parents and teachers to help them analyze their work. This process can help students critically examine their work, effort, and approach. I explain how we can modify this process and help students become more self-reflective and open to critical feedback.
When students can pinpoint what went well they can start to build mental models and study habits around their success. Many students have never been asked to reflect on what they think went well. When I work with students they are often shocked by this question, but quickly learn to love the approach because it helps them get unstuck and create positive habits.
