=our reflection about t e lesson3 including evidence$s& of student learning and engagement3 as well as ideas for im!rovement for ne4t time. 14rite this after teaching the lesson if you had a chance to teach it$ %f you did not teach this lesson focus on the process of preparing the lesson$2 %n preparing this lesson % found some frustrations$ There is a lot of information here and it is really fun to study the dynasties$ #o0e&er this class is still 0or-ing on reading comprehension and analytical reading$ %t 0ould be too much 0or- on the students especially at this time of the year 0ith all of their end of the year projects and acti&ities for me to assign at home reading$ ?urthermore the students are practicing reading and pulling out the -ey information from the paragraphs$ ;ecause of the time 0e spend 0or-ing on these s-ills there is little class time left$ %deally the students 0ould do this reading outside of class so that 0e can do projects or acti&ities in class$ % 0ould ha&e li-ed to ha&e done either a flipboo- or group presentation on these sections$ The flipboo- 0ould ha&e had a place for each dynasty and its major ad&ancements$ The group projects 0ould separated the class into four groups each ha&ing to present on an assigned dynasty$ #a&ing a short class period and needing to 0or- on the aforementioned s-ills did not allo0 for these projects to come to fruition$ 7erhaps if % had more lessons in my unit or more time in a class period % could ha&e done more projects$ This is my least fa&orite lesson in e/ecution$ The content is great but % 0ould li-e to do this material in a different 0ay ne/t time$
