3) Daily Reflections: End of Class 3W

LABEL YOUR LESSON#
WOW - ONE specific realization or Aha moment you had. What stood out? Be descriptive and specific on one major takeaway for you from the lesson today!

WHAT - ONE idea or concept that you want to explore more, or you feel it is still unclear or confusing for you from today's class. Be Self Reflective on your weaknesses.

WONDER - ONE curiosity question regarding any of the concepts covered. Ask a deeper probing question that usually starts with HOW or WHY. Think like a scientist.

Respond to ONE other classmate's post by answering their questions. You are expected to back up your answer (claim) with evidence. Cite your sources if you researched something. [Can be done at home]

4) GLOW and GROW Feedback

GLOW - Something POSITIVE that you liked. Be specific and encourage positive best practices.

GROW - One specific aspect of the post that you can improve on. Constructive Criticism.
