Reflection: Supervising Student Teachers So Much Depends... - Section 2: The Red Wheelbarrow


When teaching this lesson, I did so in partnership with my student teacher. In the lesson, we took turns on each section. I let her lead following the framework and plan of the lesson. I stepped in when we were in the modeling and direct instruction phases of the lesson. This way I can model for her good teaching practice and make sure that students understand the content that is being taught.
