As a reflective learner, you regularly make time to ponder and assess your learning (D&C 9:8-9). As you reflect you consider feedback from your teacher, peers, and your own impressions(D&C 9:8-9).

Sermon on the Mount

Prepare: Before class you mentally construct and connect the ideas and concepts you are studying. You incorporate prior feedback into your preparation.

Engage: You listen to the comments of others and seriously consider their perspectives. You also consider your own biases and seek to make righteous judgments.

Improve: As you consider feedback from teachers and fellow students, you evaluate your performance. As you ponder, you will open your mind to inspiration from the Holy Ghost on how to improve.
