Four Square Reflections

This strategy will help students to: reflect on what they have read using guiding questions to prompt their thinking.


  1. After completing the focused instruction component of the lesson, students divide their page into four, drawing lines to make boxes.
  2. The teacher gives the students a prompt or question for each of the four boxes related to the skill that was modelled in the focused instruction stage.
  3. Students respond to the questions/prompts as the teacher circulates the room clarifying any misconceptions or identifying the level of understanding of individual students.
