Re: TTESSSSS Questions
Your question is really awesome-the kind I love to read on the board. Asking questions, a willingness to share, and collegiality are characteristics of GREAT teachers and a sign that you are on the right journey! It's the reason I started the YB 20 years ago. Open this conversation with friends and colleagues you meet at TMEA and be "awed" by the amazing responses you receive. I'll be at booth 2485 if you'd like to hear an old guy's ideas(I do have a masters in educational leadership-so I remember a few things that might be helpful...).
I'm sorry someone was rude to you and that I didn't catch it (Frankly I have a hard time believing someone would be so rude for asking such a great question). I'm also sorry it stifled the discussion.
I've removed their response. They were out of line.
How would you answer these questions YB?
What objectives will be addressed in the lesson?
What are the prerequisite skills that the student have to know in order to be successful in this lesson?
Are there any particular grouping structures in place? If so, how will you hold students accountable for group work?
What are your plans for lesson closure and reflection?
Briefly describe the varied learning needs of students in this class, including those with disabilities and English Language Learners. How will you plan and prepare to meet their needs ?
What do you expect the students to know and be able to do after the lesson?
How will you assess whether or not students met the objectives for the lesson?
Are there any other special circumstances that I should be aware of before the announced observation?
Where is this lesson in context of your unit plan?
How will you differentiate your instruction in order to address a variety of learning styles?
Is there anything in particular you want me to be observing with regard to your areas of reinforcement and refinement?
Is there anything else you would like to discuss before this observation?
