Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Drama Performance: A Defenseless Creature - Section 1: Word Roots Warm Up


I have had a hard time letting go of the idea that I'm not perfect (Yes, it's true).  When I was a pre-service teacher, I really thought that anyone who did not create all of their classroom resources was phoning it in and really didn't do their job well.  How on earth could you make sure that a lesson was perfect if you hadn't crafted each and every part of it yourself?

Then, I got a job and a little reality set in.

Repeat after me: There is nothing wrong with using reproducible worksheets.

Say it again.

Now, the caveat.  Just because someone made a worksheet and got it published doesn't mean it's good.  However, published workbooks are certainly a good place to start.  There is a lot of good in those resources that can be tweaked to suit your own needs.

Another thing I've noticed: The so-called "Common-Core Aligned" resources can be awful and the old-school books can be the most rigorous, Common-Core aligned resources I have ever used. 

So, don't use worksheets blindly, but don't be afraid to use reproducibles that you know are acceptable core-aligned materials.
