A Project to Prompt Student Reflection
To prompt student reflection, a project was created in which students were asked to develop a three to five minute reflection on their personal experience with racism. The project was designed to promote an open and honest dialogue about race in the classroom and to provide resources for educators who are interested in developing curricula that foster a more inclusive environment.
The project consisted of a series of online questions that students were asked to answer as well as a reflection paper that they were required to write. The online questions addressed a wide range of topics, including what racism means to them, their personal experiences with racism, and their thoughts on how racism affects the classroom. The reflection paper was designed to help students reflect on their own experiences and explore the ways in which racism affects their classroom environment.
The project was extremely successful in facilitating an open and honest dialogue about race in the classroom. The online questions generated a large number of responses, and the reflection papers provided educators with valuable feedback. The project also provided students with the opportunity to reflect on their own experiences and develop a deeper understanding of the complex issue of racism.
