Results - Positive Worksheet as “Most Useful Tool” “It was the process of deconstructing my class and the process of my teaching that forced me to analyze how I interact with my students. That analysis helped identify areas that needed change.”
Results - Positive Makes the process concrete, visible Provides common language Encourages early intervention Focuses discussion on outcomes rather activities Broadens learning activity scope Emphasizes strategies not content
Results - Concerns Incomplete templates Blackboard’s limited collaborative features “One-time” learning
