    HOw doe this relate to the call by "educators" for students to do more
    reflection and more higher order thinking? First of all, IMHO, regular
    educators do not really know what it means for students to reflect or engage
    in higher order thinking. The English teachers have to make a form for the
    students to use. The form usually structures the students thinking as well as
    the outcome. They have, however, labeled it with the new terminology in the
    appropriate places so it is new. They are praised by administrators who also
    haven't a clue. Every other "regular" subject area teacher copies the form.
    Voila, everybody's doing reflection and higher order thinking. It just
    HAPPENS to look like the same old thing.
    Look what they have done to portfolio assessment!
