I have been quite impressed at how much we can get from the ‘discipline’ of journaling.

Journaling allows us to dive deep into ourselves. We think about ourselves, our learning, we reflect and we become more aware of things we want to accomplish, things that are important to us and how we might get there.

I have noticed that journaling is an excellent tool for self-reflection, a great habit for self-improvement and for learning, and teaching!

I am starting an experiment with my students very soon where they will use their own journal at every class (or at least every week) to record their growing awareness(es) about their learning (while they are learning French) as well as writing down what they notice/d about themselves as learners (and simply as humans / persons)!

I am looking forward to seeing them involved in this exercise and finding out how this might contribute to showcasing learning evidence.
