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


First, gather up your entries from this session and re-read them, making any additional comments or editing your original comments. Highlight the questions that were most provocative or productive for you in thinking about communication. Are you satisfied with your responses or do you have more to say about the topic now? If so, go for it. Finally, read the questions below and answer one in light of the students and content you teach.

Questions to write and reflect about:
  • Small changes can have 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 if, instead of Mr. Cabana's class, a video team was to arrive tomorrow to film your class as a study of communication in action. What would it show? What would you be proud of, what might you want to change?
  • Where would you like to be as a teacher with respect to communication in a year? How might you get there? How will you know?
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.


Your work will be displayed in a printer-friendly format to enable you to print.

Thanks for writing in your journal. Please print out these last entries and add them to those for Journals 1-4.

Next  In the next session, we address the Problem Solving standard.
