Each teacher participating in New Teacher Academy (NTA) will either record themselves teach (audio or video) or ask a colleague to come record them teach a lesson or chunk of a lesson. The lesson or chunk of a lesson will be reviewed, and the new teacher will unpack the lesson looking for areas of strengths and areas of growth. The new teacher will develop a reflection thinking about the following questions:
- What did I see or hear that are points of pride or praise?
- What did I see or hear that areas for growth and re-consideration?
The reflection should NOT be a recap of the lesson or piece of a lesson. It should focus on what it tells you about your own practices and how to grow.
