Evaluating Communication
  Make a Lesson Plan | Summing Up the Session | Final Journal

 
 

First, gather your entries from Journals 1-4 and reread them, editing your original comments as desired. Highlight the questions that were most provocative or productive for you in thinking about communication. Would you like to add to what you have written? If so, go for it.


Here are some questions for your final journal:


Questions to write and reflect about:
  • Small changes can make big differences. What one change in your classroom could you make to improve communication? Could you make that change the next time you walk into your classroom –– say, tomorrow? Why or why not?
  • Imagine that a video team was to arrive tomorrow to tape your class as a study of communication in action. What would the video show? What would you be proud of? What might you want to change?
  • In terms of communication, as a teacher, where would you like to be in a year? How might you get there? How will you know when you're there?
Three ways to write and reflect:
  • Use pen and paper.
  • Use a word processor.
  • Use the form below.
Be sure to save what you have written before you navigate out of the journal section.
