TEACHER REFLECTION: At the end of the course, students are given the opportunity to reflect on their semester by creating a poster of their highlights or big takeaways. This is done by creating 6 categories that they can choose to reflect upon. These categories are generated both by the teacher and the students. Students then share their reflection posters with the class in either small groups or a gallery style walk.
