Lately, I have taken a much more hands-off approach to teaching. I am encouraging more student ownership through study guides, which require my students to do more research and more decision-making. I now want them to start really evaluating their effort. I want to encourage a growth mindset in my students instead of a fixed mindset by praising effort more than intellect. I created a rubric to grade their units when we finish a study guide. You can get a free copy of the rubric for a unit of study here.
I decided I wanted to make some Effort Rubric Posters to place in the classroom with a self-reflection form. At the end of a unit or project, they will have to self-reflect and decide where they should be on the rubric. You can get a free copy of the posters HERE.
How do you encourage effort and self-reflection?
