Post-Observation Questions
Please reflect on these questions as you complete the self-assessment.

1. In general, how successful was the lesson? Did the students learn what you intended for them to learn? How do you know?

2. If you were able to bring samples of student work, what do those samples reveal about those students' levels of engagement and
understanding?

3. Comment on your classroom procedures, student conduct, and your use of physical space. To what extent did these contribute to
student learning?

4. Did you depart from your plan? If so, how, and why?

5. Comment on different aspects of your instructional delivery (e.g. activities, grouping of students, materials, and resources). To what
extent were they effective?

6. If you had a chance to teach this lesson again to the same group of students, what would you do differently?

Lesson Plan (Domain 1) Questions


1a-1. How does this lesson reflect your understanding of the structure of the discipline you are teaching? For example, if this
lesson or unit represents one or more strands in the subject, what are the others? Or does it address more than one strand?
This unit of Reading Street has been about treasures. This week, we discussed how special places can be treasures and our main selection was about a
Southern Ranch and what life is like on a ranch. The phonics skills we learned this week are -ie, igh and wr, and kn. We read many decodables, and wrote
sentences using many words with those patterns to apply our learning.

1a-2. Are there prerequisite knowledge and skills that students must have attained before they can be successful in this unit
or lesson? If so, what are they?
We have been learning about treasures and this week's content knowledge built on that. We have also been practicing using several instructional strategies
such as segmenting and blending, "loop loop", and discrimination. The students have gotten good at using different word solving strategies as we learn more
difficult phonics skills.

1a-3. What are some typical student misconceptions (if any) about the content you are teaching? How will you address those?
We learned this week that -ie at the end of a word says the long I sound and ie in the middle of a word says the long e sound. This is difficult when decoding a
word so we learned to try sounding it out both ways to see which sound makes the word (or sentence) make sense.

1b-1. Describe the knowledge and skills of the students for whom you are planning this unit or lesson. Has this required that
you differentiate within the plan?
The majority of my class is ready to learn more advanced phonics patterns but I do have several students who are below grade level and the advanced phonics
are very difficult for them. For these students, I save previous decodables and reread them during my small group time with them. This is also something
Mrs. Marsman and I communicate regularly about on things she can do during her push-in time to help build their skills in prior and current objectives.

1b-3. What do you know of the interests and cultural backgrounds of the students you teach? How do you use this information
in your planning of this lesson or unit?
The concept of a ranch is foreign to many of my students because of where we live. After having a guest teacher the day before to introduce the selection
vocabulary and the main selection, I made sure to reteach the vocabulary and try to help them make connections to something they are more familiar with.
The additional stories used for small group instruction were also about life on a ranch which helped as well.
1b-4. How have you accommodated (if it is necessary) students with special needs?
I do not have any students with special needs this year.

1d-1. What materials or resources will you use to teach this unit or lesson? Are these provided by your school or district?
Everything I use for reading is from the Reading Street curriculum provided by the district.
