This has been a crazy week for me, I had surgery on Monday and I am still getting my wits about me. L This week we used the UBD template for our two-week teaching project. I have limited exposure of the template outside of class assignments. I like the formats and it does help organize my thoughts. My teacher friends tell they use templates for their learning lessons all the time. I was not sure if I should use the school provided standards or use an adult one. Therefore, I am combining some of the attributes of both.
This week I learned from my peers that most of them were challenged too. I liked the different approaches I saw.
- Kendra talked about her opinion about not including assessment grade as part of the grade book (I agree)
- Shauna introduced us to the NWEA Skills Navigator which has a great reporting tool
- Chelsea talked about Classroom Poll App, which is another great assessment tool
