Assess Yourself! How Did You Do This Year?
Easton, Lois Brown
Educational Horizons, v89 n3 p16-22 Spr 2011
Most teachers look back on their first year (or years) of teaching with humility, many with some regret. The author stresses that teachers are always learners, especially so in their first years. At the beginning of each year, they start over again with new students. A learning teacher takes risks and makes mistakes but derives new information, understanding, and knowledge from them. In this article, the author discusses how to assess one's learning this year. The author presents quick surveys to take in order to discover one's strengths and weaknesses in the classroom.
