Okay, I videoed a lesson, now what?
- Watch the video!
- During the first viewing, watch the students
-Were they engaged?
-Did they interact with one another in a respectful manner?
-Did they clearly understand how they were to behave?
-Did they engage in high level conversations?
-Do they understand how well they are progressing
- During the second viewing, watch yourself
-Was your praise to correction ration at least 3 to 1?
-Did you clearly explain expectations prior to each activity?
-Were your corrections calm, consistent, immediate, and planned in advance?
-Were your questions at the appropriate level (know, understand, do)?
-Were your learning structures (stories, cooperative learning, PGW, modeling thinking, etc.)
-Did you use a variety of learning structures?
-Can you tell what your students know and don't know?
