Teachers have participated in the sixth session of the ESL endorsement.  They are now ready to reflect on the activities of the session and find ways to incorporate them into their own teaching. 

Instructions

  1. At the end of each session the facilitator will assign the participants to write in their journal addressing several questions. The journal will be turned in on the final session for the facilitator to review.  The journal may also be used during group discussions on the following week.  Bring your journal with you to class each week as they may be asked to refer to them during group discussions. 
  2. For session six answer the following questions:
    1. What are the three critical learning domains? What evidence do you see in your teaching that you are attending to all three.  Which seem to be strong and which seem to be weak?
    2. Which of the five Standards for Effective Pedagogy are you most familiar with and which are most evident in your classroom? Which seem to need your attention and what can you do to increase the use of the standard?
