Have students write end-of-unit reflections to review material, monitor their learning, and integrate writing into your CS course.

  • Give students sentence starters like "In this unit I learned…" to help the students get started and to write complete sentences. This is helpful especially for English Language Learners.
  • Consider having students take screenshots to include in their writing so they can illustrate what they’ve learned or difficulties they’ve had.
  • The knowledge you gain from student reflections can help you improve scaffolding for tough content for future students.
