  40. 40. Self-Reflection Highlights 3-17-11 Overall, I was fairly pleased with how my lesson went today. The students seemed engaged by the topic of the article and stayed on task for the entire lesson. Furthermore, the goals and objectives of my lesson were met. Ideally, I would like to do a follow-up lesson with another article and see how well my students can attempt the process on their own or in pairs. 3-29-11 I wish I would have told them that they will now have a more keen sense for finding sentence fragments when peer editing each others’ work. I think I will mention that today at the start of my ELA lesson as a review from yesterday. Week 3 One goal that I would like to achieve this week is to spend some time exploring the capabilities of the ActiveBoard. Week 8 This week I am going to work on giving clear instructions during my lessons. Week 6 My main goal this week is to make cross connections between at least three subject areas. Week 9 I am definitely getting more comfortable with correcting inappropriate behavior.
  41. 41. Principle 10 The teacher fosters relationships with school colleagues, parents and agencies in the larger community to support students’ learning and well-being.
