Essential Element

Evidence:Where possible, provide one piece of evidence that you believe demonstrates your performance relative to the quality, consistency or scope of each element.

1.A.4: Well-Structured Lessons

Detailed powerpoint with timers, ideas, videos, and prompting questions. The flow of the class was evident, allowing the students to slowly build on their knowledge and understanding.

1.B.2: Adjustments to Practice

Prompting questions were tailored as the discussion developed in order to lead students to where they needed to be as far as content.

2.A.3: Meeting Diverse Needs

Lesson was tailored to be inclusive of verbal, visual, and auditory learners. It also presented students with the opportunity to learn through individual reflection, and group reflection, setting up success for both social and solitary learners.

2.B.1: Safe Learning Environment

Students were given the chance to reflect independently before turning and talking to the person next to them. They also got to talk about ideas and thoughts in small groups before speaking out loud to the class. This provided an unintimidating atmosphere and took all pressure of students in the discussion. Also, groups were assigned in order to diversify groups and implement a safe social strategy.

2.D.2: High Expectations

The project guidelines were formally written out in detail and grading expectations were clarified. Opportunity for questions emerged in order to clarify all expectations. Quality of finished project should reflect creativity, good craftsmanship, preparation, and meet all written out criteria.
