V. Reflective Response
A. Report of Student Performance in Terms of Stated Objectives (Reflection on
student performance written after lesson is taught, includes remediation for
students who fail to meet acceptable level of achievement)

Over all, I have been pleased with the classes that I have
had so far. Many of them are willing to work on the task
quietly without a lot of off task behavior. It is clear that even
the students who are talking are doing so with questions
about the project itself. The teacher and aid are currently
loving this project and having the students dig for
information in an article, and also seeing me be flexible at
times with what Im looking for, depending on the student.
B. Personal Reflection (Questions written before lesson is taught. Reflective
answers to question recorded after lesson is taught
Did students enjoy this lesson? Why or why not.

The projects that have currently been turned in (writing this

mid-day 1) have actually turned out really well. Its given me
a chance to also experience the loads of questions that
students can have surrounding a project. Im enjoying
watching these students try at something that is kind of
different for them.
How well did students understand the project based upon todays lesson? Explain.

Ive been through three of the four sections, and only section
S had an extreme amount of questions on it. Section D and N
had some, but at one point for section S had a line of
students asking questions.

Would you use this lesson again? Explain.

This kind of goes off of yesterdays reflection as well, but I

could definitely see myself using this lesson again, as the
students have seemed to really get into it, and that makes
me as a teacher get into it as well.
