The prompt for today is:
Discuss one “observation” area that you would like to improve on for your teacher evaluation.
I feel like I am always striving to improve some aspect of my teaching style, classroom management, lesson delivery and so forth. Though this feels a little bigger than the one or two formal observations each year, one area I really want to focus on is providing and continually reviewing expectations and behaviors to establish routines. I truly believe that if students know what is expected, the majority of them will complete the expected tasks. And once the students know how to do things, we can then get to working on the what.
I’m excited about some of the new procedures we’ll be using in class this year and I look forward to having the students be part of the process as we create a flourishing learning community!
