Reflection Process

two people thinking

The Reflection Process is based on the Focused Conversation model that was developed by the Canadian Institute of Cultural Affairs.[1] It is a series of questions that serves as the process for a school team (e.g. learning team) to discuss a school’s strategic plan and progress towards goals in a systematic and sustainable way.  The process facilitates a conversation between all participating members to get an overview of the progress and consider next steps. It is important that these conversations are held around data that can lead to meaningful reflection on school-based norms and practices.

Ladder of Inference

The Ladder of Inference is a tool that describes our thinking as we move from facts to decisions or actions.  It can be particularly useful to be aware of your own personal ladder when you are in the midst of conflict.
