Abstract EN

This study reports on the contribution of reflective journal writing to students’ development of knowledge and skills in authentic learning of BA students in a Hebron University, Palestine (n=76).

The research was conducted using both quantitative and qualitative methods to ascertain the nature and the impact that reflective writing and reflective journals may have upon the quality of student teachers’ reflection upon five dimensions of authentic learning.

The results obtained from the questionnaires and the analysis of the reflective journals revealed that students held positive attitudes towards the journal reflection process with regard to all five dimensions.

Participants generally viewed their experiences in reflective journal writing to be valuable and enjoyable.They particularly valued the active involvement and personal ownership as supportive to improving their language skills.
