Today, one month into the new school year, I had my first of 4 observations. My organization decided to split it up into four bite-sized observations instead of two major ones. I actually like this way better than the old way because I feel like the observer can get a better picture of how I teach.
Here’s a technique I learned in the summer regarding how to gather evidence from a video.
Students pick a side. For this video, they were looking for evidence to support Beyonce being weak or Beyonce being strong in the IRREPLACEABLE video.
For the sake of brevity and chaos, I put the students in a group.
Students watch the video one time just to get a feel for it and collect 1-2 pieces of evidence.
Students then watch it a second time to gather more evidence. At this point the student should have at least 3-5 pieces of evidence. If you, as a teacher, feel that your students need to watch it again, play the video a third time.
Write your evidence down
We’ll watch it a third time to gather even more evidence
Write even more evidence down
