Quiz Answer Reflection Activity

Developed by one of our certified educators, the Quiz Answer Reflection activity can be used with any article. Have your students record their quiz answers and reflect upon why they chose either the correct or incorrect answer.

This is a great way to get your students actively thinking about their answers and realizing the process is just as important as the product. Try using this activity as a starting point for meaningful conversations either in one one on conferences or peer groups.
