Each month teachers participating in New Teacher Academy (NTA) schedule a time to meet with their supervising building principal to discuss assigned questions. These 10-15 minute meetings are for discussing the questions and engage in dialogue around them. After conducting the interview/having the discussion, NTA participants reflect on the conversation. NTA participants can either
- write a reflection,
- create a verbal podcast,
- or create a video reflection and attach it to this assignment.
Each month will have new questions for the NTA participant to ask and reflect upon what resonated, what needs further clarification, and how the conversation will impact teaching practice. The goal of this on-going NTA learning activity is to reflect, not recap.
