One of the most critical areas for growth as a professional is the ability to reflect on our practices. The Colloquium provides an opportunity for second year teachers to share with first year teachers, their Support Providers and others, the journey they have taken.
2nd Year Teachers: 8 - 10 minutes - Formal
Take a look at your growth over the past two years. Choose one area in which you feel you have made the most growth, and present a "rear view mirror" reflection of your journey. Where did you start, what key things did you learn? Then prepare a "road map" for the next part of your journey as a teacher. What direction will your third year take, based on what you have learned?
Your presentation may take any form, but must include;
1) a reflection on your growth process
2) information about your focus students - based on your inquiry
3) a possible next step(s)
