How reflective learns can help themselves
- Don’t just read or memorize the information, stop from time-to-time to review what you have read and to think of possible questions or applications.
- Reflective learners may find it helpful to write short summaries of what they’ve read or writing class notes in their own words, which will enable them to retain the information more effectively.
