Reflection: Shared Expectations Avoiding the Librarian Stare Down (Expectations for Visiting the Library) - Section 1: Guiding Question


One thing that my National Boards taught me was the importance of incorporating visual opportunities into lessons. I think about that a lot, and try to incorporate images into my lessons--either done by the students (as in today's lesson), or embedded into a graphic organizer, or a cute cartoon on a checklist for a Personal Narrative. As a visual learner myself, it's important that I can connect something important to something visual.
