1.9 Technology
2.1 Reflection on Planning
Show assessment results if the lesson is taught. Write your reflection
on the
plan, its development, and ways to improve it.
2.2 Reflection on Instruction
For the most part, our instruction was effective. I think there were
times where Amanda and I had to improvise or rethink our plan because we
went off track. Also, there were times where our communication could have
been way better. At some points we would question each other, when trust
may have been a better thing to have. Overall, I thought it went pretty
smoothly and the goal was reached. One thing I think could have gone better
is the rote song- it was taught incorrectly/without authority the first time, and
then it was hard to get back from there.
