How many times I read this article! I understand how reflection is important thing to write. Moreover, I know the heart of writing practice is the reflection.
In my experience, Guided Reflection Protocol is good for high level students, while Critical Incidents is good for lower level students. High level students can understand teacher's instruction quickly and easily, so they can follow every steps in Guided Reflection Protocol and write appropriately what teacher expects. However, lower level students are afraid of writing something themselves. They feel comfortable with group activities, that they don't need to be a leader of the group all the time. They just can share their stories and follow others' opinion easily and can get the result. So, 'The Critical Incidents Protocol' is better way for them.
However, I learned how to write ordinary story that is not very interesting into a particular story thinking of reflection deeper and deeper.
If I write an assay from now on, I am going to think about reflection beyond the actual fact as I read this article.
