Daily Teaching Summary (2-7-2014)

American Government HeaderPERIOD 1 – American Government

TEACHING OBJECTIVE – Students will complete a thorough course survey that will ask for their input on curriculum design, the course itself so far, and the teacher’s performance.

TEACHING SUMMARY – Today I held Academic Conferences with as many students as possible. In these I pulled up students to the front of the room to a desk I had set up and went over their grade privately with them just to make sure it was as accurate as possible before I submitted it as a progress report grade. While I was doing this students worked in small groups to answer the course survey I had developed for them. I wanted their input on how I should teach the rest of the course, what they thought about various aspects of the course so far, and I wanted their opinions on my own performance as a teacher.

HOMEWORK – If it was found today during your academic conference with me that you owe me work I want you focusing on completing that this weekend and getting it back to me on Tuesday.

STUDENT OF THE DAY – J. Herrera-Gonzalez – This student needs to be recognzied for her hard work in school in multiple subjects. She also is excellent in keeping a vigilant watch on her grade online.
