4: Reflection & References
After, implementing your lesson it is important to 'de-brief' or reflect upon your performance. It is expected that you are also an active and reflective learner, just like your students. You've already gone through this course, so "Congratulations!" you are on the right track!
Try to answer the following questions:
- Did your solution help you to acquire and provide more feedback on student learning? Why or Why not?
- What would change or amend if you were to try this again?
Professional Learning Community (PLC)
There is so much information out there for us to acquire, that we cannot possibly be expected to do it alone. Collaboration within our own schools is vital to the growth and learning of both our students and ourselves. Teachers should, at least bi-yearly, meet to discuss the following within their own learning community, regardless meeting in regards to course, department, or school-wide objectives. Dufour recommends that the PLC focus on the following three questions:
- What do we want each student to learn?
- How will we know when each student has learned it?
- How will we respond (to those who have not yet succeeded...and those who have)?
