Reflection: Student Ownership How long will it take? (Day 1 of 2) - Section 4: Closure


I've had plenty of surprises which have led me to re-teach certain parts of the lesson and reflect on the approaches taken in the plan. Sometimes the question or misconception can be answered on the spot, but other times, these need to be addressed the next day. I always write these down so I won't forget. There have been days when I think I've done an awesome job, only to find I was not so awesome at all. This reminds me that it's not about me, it's about the learners and how much they've mastered the content.
