1. Refer to Appendix A to review the criteria on which you are being assessed. On that Appendix, check off the appropriate box according to your own
self-perceptions.

2. a) Reread your associate teacher’s feedback, including emails, notes, letter of concern and evaluation reports. Using your associate teacher’s
comments as a guide, complete the table below in detail, listing strengths/areas for further development, regardless of whether you agree or not.

b) Once you have completed the table to reflect your associate teacher’s comments, revisit the table below. Using a different colour, highlight the
Strengths / Areas for Further Development with which you agree. Reflect upon / add additional Strengths / Areas for Further Development

Prioritize your goals for next placement. Is there an underlying factor (“push factor”) that would
enhance your performance overall (i.e. better organization?)
3. How will you further develop your teaching skills? Focusing on your Areas for Further Development, as well as your Strengths, design your Learning
