Today’s class was so helpful, we met with Tana, and everything I was confused/worried about became so much clear, and I feel a little bit better about the Social Studies curriculum. Tana was very helpful, and answered all the questions we had, and she even answered questions I did even think of asking. She showed us one of her unit plans and it helped me out so much to see what needs to be done, and what can be done. I also liked the fact that she showed us differentiated instructions she uses in her classrooms that work for her.
I like the idea of making our own rubric, or working as a class I guess, to make our own rubric. Its nice to see that everyone is on a similar page, or understanding.
I do wish we would have gotten to talk about the video that we were to watch. I did watch it, and I really liked the points it was bringing across. I think the most agreeable strategy that was brought in, was the green, yellow and red cups for the students. I believe that would be a good way to see where students are at when you are teaching.
I found this days class to be very insightful and helpful.
