"International students are often unaccustomed to the American focus on critical thinking in the classroom. One of the most useful ways to introduce these students to the idea is via reflective practice. If we can help students reflect on a lesson or an experience, it opens an avenue to them to engage with their own thoughts on the topic presented and then be open to the ideas of classmates the teacher guides the process of creating knowledge together in the classroom. While the students are engaged in flexing the "muscle" of reflective practice, they are also being exposed to the action of thinking critically so they can reproduce the experience on their own going forward."
