Summary of Day:

  • Got to school
  • Spent the morning talking with group about how post-lesson assessments would go
  • Went upstairs to practice in my classroom – practiced with Promethean board (a wall-screen you can hook your computer up to and interact with). Other team members got very enthused about it.
  • “Official” teacher talked with me a bit. I told her of us four TFAers, I would be the lead teacher that day (meaning I would be the one actually teaching)
  • My nerves started to show, so I went out in hall to wait for kids
  • Kids came
  • Gave my lesson
  • Kids left
  • My lesson was analyzed for me by my CMA (core member advisor)
  • Went downstairs to our meeting room
  • (I don’t remember what happened next!)
  • Had to input OSAT data (student attendance, mastery, etc.)
  • Returned to Georgia Tech – we were met by a welcoming committee who came bearing snowcones
  • Had to review a videotape recording of my lesson that day, then met with CMA to discuss
  • Lesson planning for the next few days
  • Updated blog
  • More lesson planning!
