Standard Three Reflection
Because I was filmed during my Lesson 6 presentation, I had numerous chances to examine my planning and delivery from various angles. The lesson had its strengths and weaknesses.
First, I will address the parts that need improvement.
1. The objectives I set for the class were only partially met. Students did not know why I asked them to draw pictures of modern segregation (which was a part of the diagram process that needed more guidance and explanation) nor did they understand why I asked them to compile a list of an adjective, noun, and verb to describe their schools. I need to work on providing better directions, and I need to continue planning with a clear end-goal in mind.
2. There was not enough time for the students to finish the projects they began and to share their creations. My 4Ms need to be reinforced.
3. I must check for student understanding as I teach.
And these are the parts of the lesson, which went well:
1. The DTP was informative and interactive. On the one hand, the students were taking notes. On the other hand, they provided good responses to the questions I inserted into my presentation.
2. The students put much effort into the project of promoting educational equality. The work they finished and presented the following day was of great quality. I think the way the project was set up allowed students to work in their most effective manner (writing, drawing, creating slogans, composing poetry) and setting (individually or as a group).
