Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Myth Madness: Using Technology to Share Favorite Myths (Day 1) - Section 4: Demonstrate Skills


At one point in this lesson, I felt almost as though I wasn't "doing much".  And actually, quite a bit this year, I feel like the majority of my work has been outside of the classroom in preparing for the lesson and the students, but when it came time for the instruction or the actual lesson, many times I've felt as though I'm not "doing much".  The funny thing, when I really sit and think about it, is that I think I AM doing quite a bit, but it's just that my role has changed!  With the implementation of the CCSS, I feel like teachers may find themselves no longer being the "sage on the stage" (as I know we've all heard that phrase before), and instead, just in the background more, ensuring that facilitation of the lesson and learning is underway!  And truthfully-how great is that the kids in my classroom are capable and independent enough (thanks to the ground work I've helped lay for them) to get going all on their own and take ownership of their learning!  That's what I would want for my students-so I guess this adjustment to my role really is a good thing!
