Here are 5 top tips for reflective writing:
Be curious about what you see, read and hear. Become a good observer and a good listener.
Carry a notebook and pen to note down your thoughts and questions.
Try writing from different perspectives, e.g. students or parents, asking yourself, ‘What’s it like to be you?’
Draw on your reading to inform your reflections.
Go beyond descriptive writing to the higher levels of reflection: analysis, evaluation, synthesis.
