  • Reflecting on today’s Quran lesson This exercise allows students  to reflect on the learning objectives of their Quran lesson; what they understood and could apply and what they didn't understand and couldn't apply. They also reflect on what strategies or activities worked well for them and what sort of activities would help them attain the learning objectives. You may incorporate this activity as a plenary or during quiet time, while you work with individuals on a one-to-one level.
