A Taxonomy of Reflection: Critical Thinking For Students, Teachers, and Principals

Pappas does an admirable job of delineating taxonomies for reflection of not just students but also of teachers and school principals. Pappas asserts that each group has experiences that may be reflected upon superficially, very deeply, or at various levels in between. I have used this work to guide my construction of "reflection" sections of scoring rubrics.

Technical Remarks:

This material is presented in a series of blog postings. The author is careful to interlink the various entries, but this may be a bit challenging for some audience members who are not familiar with the intricacies of navigating the blogosphere.
