  1. Reflection explicitly identifies a specific area of classroom instruction and effectively explains how the research concept was applied to improve the outcomes in the identified area.
  2. Explains why the specific area was selected, what changes were made to implement the concept and with whom the individual implemented the research concept.
  3. Examples (artifacts) are provided to highlight the effectiveness of the implemented research concept including: student response to the concept and what if any changes in the environment were attributed to implementation of the concept.
  4. Includes a discussion of the success or lack of success regarding implementation of the concept. In addition there is an explanation of the suspected reason for the observed outcomes.
  5. Reflection includes a statement regarding what, if any, changes will be made to improve upon implementation of the research concept and an explanation as to why the suggested changes will be useful.
