Professional Reflection

Take a step back from your classroom and examine the video clip in relation to your own instructional practices. Use the questions below to spark discussion about instructional practices in department meetings, team meetings, or as a prompt in your own professional journal.

Consider:

  • How independent are your students during small-group discussions?
  • How do you support growing student independence?
  • What else might you do to help them be more independent?
  • What role(s) do you assume in small-group discussions?
  • What else might you do to help them become better readers and discussants?
