Reflection: Lesson Planning Research Part 2 - Section 2: Lesson


I post the list of goals for the day on the SMART board in this lesson because I know from experience that if I do not give my students a target they'll accomplish little to nothing today. However, I have a few students in each class that require more, so while students are working, I'm circulating.  As I'm doing this and without being obvious, I pay special attention to those students and "check in" with them to be sure they are meeting the goals set.  Having the goals posted makes it easy for me to redirect them (or any student) as needed.

I have given students a handout with the goals to fill in, in the past, but I felt that it was too controlling, stifling their own creativity and growth, so  I backed off.  Honestly, no one in the real world is going to give them a handout to fill in, so they need the practice of doing it themselves.
