Personal Reflection in Leaving Certificate Applied Learning Path

By PDST

The resources in this learning path could be used as stimuli for students, with the teacher creating tasks around the varied resources. These include template documents for Personal Reflection Year 1 and Personal Reflection Year 2, starter phrases to promote deeper student reflection and a presentation on the use of graphic organisers in personal reflection. These resources are intended to inform and promote discussion and reflection in preparation for the Personal Reflection task which consists of a Statement in Year 1 and a Statement in Year 2. An extract from the Chief Examiner's Report 2014 relevant to this task is also included to highlight the assessment of this task and recommendations to both teachers and students.
