More musing on the coaching relationship… I thought it might be worthwhile to imagine how I would assess myself and how I’d want observers to assess my classroom. Here’s what I’ve got so far. I hope that observers would see:
- Classroom Culture:
- Students looking to themselves, their text, and other resources as much as they look to me for mathematical expertise.
- Students checking to see if any mathematical claim made (by me, themselves, each other, a text, etc.) makes sense & is reasonable.
