Summative Reflection 2015-16

Name __Abby Hasebroock_______ Department _____English_________ Date __April 23,


Verification that professional development goals have been met (from PDP).

90% Paperless: The only paper used in my English classes was to facilitate class
brainstorms or activities, or assessments (essays or tests). Based on student feedback,
this was efficient and aided in organization of materials.
Observe Level 9 colleagues at least once this year
Transitions during classroom activities: I worked very hard on running an efficient
classroom, and students came to expect a consistent routine from the Do Now to the end
of class. My unit powerpoints are detailed but provided structure and ensured that class
ran smoothly. I am most proud of how I integrated technology to help students move at a
pace appropriate for them, but also balanced the needs of the class
Reflection on the different components of observation this year (including peer observation,
student course evaluation surveys, observations/walkthroughs from department chair and
Peer Observation with Jim Luzzi on Monday, February 22, 2016: I enjoyed observing Jims
Honors Geometry class, as we had several students in common.
Administered Student Course Evaluations in October 2015, December 2015, and May
Observed by Sarah Hutchinson and Becky Frett
Dropped in to observe English Level 9 team members
Observed Dr. Jay Wood, who shares classroom 464 with me
I think the best classrooms let student interest drive learning, and I used a mid-point course
evaluation to shape the end of the first semester, as well as the semester course evaluation to
make adjustments in my creative writing elective. I allowed for student choice in selection of a
work of nonfiction during the final unit in the freshman English course, as well as a variety of
alternative assessment options that allowed students to demonstrate competency in different
ways (creative assessment, written assessment, and a unit test).
List and reflect on your involvements/ areas of focus this year (both in and out of the
classroom.) Include an overall reflection on the school year.
