End of Class Self-Reflection


Sit with both feet on the floor.  Put down any objects you are holding (pen, book, etc) and place your hands on the table in front of you or in your lap. Close your eyes if that feels comfortable to you. Take 2 deep breaths from your belly.  Imagine the air entering through the soles of your feet and drawing up through the top of your head.  Exhale from the top of your head out through the soles of your feet.  Then ask yourself these questions:


How prepared was I for class today (e.g.  did the readings; thought about the topic since the last class)?

What did I bring into class with me (e.g. eagerness to learn; intellect; curiosity; residuals from something earlier in the day/week; anticipation of something later in the day/week)?

What contribution did I offer to the class (e.g. attentiveness to classmates and the teacher; support and encouragement of classmates; thought, question, opinion or insight; apathy; negativity; nothing)?

What do I take with me from class (e.g. positive energy; negative energy; deeper understanding; confusion; increased self-confidence; decreased self-confidence)?

What do I want to do differently for the next class?
