Reflection also serves as a form of evaluation.

34 Copyright All rights reserved by National FFA Organization. Reflection Reflection is On-Going Pre Reflection: prepares participants for the project Active Reflection: occurs in the field and requires critical thinking Post Reflection: is used as an evaluation tool

35 Copyright All rights reserved by National FFA Organization. Reflection - Activity Using Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences, create a way to reflect BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER a project that ties to at least two different areas of the model.
