Yesterday I made a ‘why it didn’t get done’ reflection document, today we tried it out. Wow! Almost all of the students were open to the feedback, received it as an opportunity to learn, and flew into catching up during their work time after that. It was so impactful on me that I’ll be thinking about it for days.
The bar has been seriously raised from this. The connection with students, the common push in the same direction, the ‘we’ve got this together’ feeling… I am reeling.
It’s taken me this long to learn the basics of being a teacher.
