8 What really happened Four lessons to take place during the week before Passover turned into two lessons before Passover and two lessons after. First lesson too fast, remaining lessons too slow Rough start turned into decent ending

9 Day to day reflection Lesson 1 Lesson 2 Went well: Students were comfortable Students informed of agenda for day and for unit Need to work on: Transitions/closure Keeping students aware of time factors Being aware of the whole classroom Went well: Sparked student interest Students became familiar with recipes Need to work on: Getting off to a better start Better ways of handling the amount of off-task behaviors Time frames

10 Day to day reflection Lesson 3 Lesson 4 Went well: Students finished their poems and turned them in Need to work on: Classroom management Better transitions Students without supplies Went well: Students read aloud Class discussion Student reflections Need to work on: Transitions Classroom management

11 Overall reflection School schedule makes teaching more difficult Lack of rapport with students worked against me Getting used to the classroom setting again Yes, but… Recipe poems were impressive Student reflections were impressive and helpful Student interest and pride
