18 Video Reflection: Student Engagement Focus 1. Briefly describe the instruction you provided during the lesson. 2. To what extent were students actively engaged in the lesson? How do you know? 3. If you had the opportunity to teach this lesson over again, what would you do differently? 4. If there was one thing from the lesson you would share with a colleague, what would it be? from Jill Hall, principal of Neal Middle School, Durham Public Schools
