I finally got around to reviewing the results with my students. I explained to them how we always review their data and create goals, so I must do it too. One of my students was quick to point out questions he answered that pushed my results to red ‘I did that Ms Nunan but I didn’t understand what the question meant’, so sweet. I explained to the students we will create goals together to ensure I can improve in areas I need to.
I was happy with the results of the survey. This is my first year teaching in Grade 3 and I was nervous. I knew and was hoping that I would score high in the care category as that is something I really value and take great pride in. I will facilitate a morning meeting around children finding classwork captivating to understand their opinion regarding this area. I had chosen clarity as my area of focus and the results have given me clear directions. I think I may share the results with my students and ask for their opinion regarding how we can move forward
The strand I am choosing based on my results from the questionnaire is, clarify. I feel a do a good job at this, however, with the move to G3, I want to ensure I am explaining the concept clearly and develop a bank of strategies to help and challenge my students. I am also keen to try out techniques that I could not do at a very high level in KG. For example, we are currently unpacking the student checklist for narrative writing. The aim of this is to ensure students know and understand what is expected of them when writing a narrative text.
