Receiving real-time instructional feedback explains and analyzes an assignment called "The Reflection Journal" I have assigned in my ENGL 1102 for several years. The purpose of the assignment is for students to reflect and comment upon classroom experiences and difficulties in a manner that asks them to define or describe a problem and to seek solutions and perspective. Students often comment on difficulties in the instruction or materials; I use their comments to revise instruction while entering into conversations about their individual learning experiences. This has proved to be a useful real-time form of receiving student feedback - and as this also functions as a writing assignment, I have observed notable improvements in student clarity, I believe, because of the unstructured nature of journal writing.
