Writing an Author Reflection[edit| edit source]

Each author, after posting the final version of either their Foundations article or Assessment article, should leave an "Author Reflection" on their article's discussion page.

An Author Reflection is a statement from the author reflecting on the content of their article. Some example author reflections include:

  • The author's opinion on the topic based on the information reported and his/her own personal experience.
  • A personal experience related to the topic such as an observation from a classroom or a memory of a personal school experience.
  • Questions the author was left with after researching the topic.
  • Deliberations the author had about what content to include in the article or which sources to use.
