Reflection: Conferencing Organizing A Second Idea - Section 3: Independent Practice


In the independence section of my lesson you see me giving the two students I am with my full attention. One student calls out, the phone rings, the door shuts loudly as one student leaves after receiving a pass. This is every day life as a teacher! Students know that in my classroom it is a rule not to bother me during conferences; my one on one and or small group conference time is sacred.

Corenlius Minor, our school's trainer put it to our teachers this way, "Think about your favorite moment with one of your favorite teachers, it was most likely when you were one on one with them." I know that is true for me! In other words, students will learn best and remember more when they have their teacher's full attention.
