Teacher Reflections

In these videos, we hear a teacher reflecting on her planning, teaching, assessing, and management every day during a week of teaching. 

The focus is on how the teacher reflects on student understanding from the daily lesson then adapts her plans accordingly. The teacher discusses difficult concepts and skills for students and how she plans to address the needs.

The discussions also include ideas about how teacher differentiates and manages vocabulary, grading notebooks, and homework.

This has a collection of 5 video chapters from five different days during Growing, Growing, Growing. It includes parts of Investigation 3, 4, and 5.

As you view the video, consider the following:

  • What does the teacher use as evidence of students’ understanding and reasoning? What prior understandings does she see students building upon?
  • How does the teacher use her reflection of the lesson to plan for the next day?
  • How is the teacher facilitating the development of students’ understanding and reasoning through the use of differentiation, vocabulary, homework, notebooks?
