  • Jen –
    LESSON: We have touched on similes just a bit and new I needed to teach them and have the kids be able to identify them before we began our new novel on Monday
    CLASS: Just based on Marcy’s schedule. She was able to come on that Thursday afternoon. Ordinarily wouldn’t pick that class to be one I did something “extra” with
  • Successes
    RAPPORT: we didn’t know each other before but get along great, easy to talk to her
    GOAL FOR LEARNER: to feel supported and comfy going into a grade and meeting kids she didn’t know
    QUESTIONS: were good backup and kept conversation on topic
    CONSTRAINING GUIDE: felt that I was unable to veer away from it as an outline
  • JEN – Comfortable with Marcy as coach, and having her in my classroom conducting an observation
    Nervous about timeframe of
  • JEN – Very hands on with my kids and it was hard to take the step back and let someone else have control of my class
    Was difficult to make mental notes as I was videotaping and felt like I was multi-tasking as well watching to make sure she was ok in her conversations with the kids and think about the post conference, I might have been better off taking notes
  • JEN – felt nervous having a peer in my room who had taught a fun lesson before me, and an older grades teacher videotaping
    Lesson did not go smoothly because of my nervousness, gave wrong directions, 2nd guessed myself
    Hard to have kids focus, too many things going on for them – videocam and marcy
    Time was an issue, because of it being after lunch and having no recess and the bell about to ring
  • Reflection sheet helped me formulate my questions
    Conversation and recap went well
    Data, felt inadequate but that I was doing what Marcy wanted / needed / asked for,
    M had a good lesson, she talked with the kids about their differences – wish that she would have been able to delve deeper and use true vocab, she gave the kids good feedback and praise – something they hear from me but can be lacking at home
    Hard to let M have control of the conversation
  • Easy to understand, wasn’t uncomfy
    Helpful to get data points from someone who is not in a classroom and does not know the kids
    Didn’t feel like I was under scrutiny
    We were able to talk about any of my concerns and discuss ways to alleviate problems in the classroom
