Assessment for Learning Teaching Video

Assignment Purpose

This video assignment had several purposes that were fulfilled. Due to this assignment, I

was able to receive constructive feedback from my peers, create a social skills lesson, and

implement different techniques. I have acquired classroom management techniques, pacing

routines, informal and formal assessments throughout the course that I showcased during the

lesson.

Other key aspects for recording my lesson is that I am able to assess the interaction

between the students and I. Observing classroom management, student engagement, and

feedback are all elements of the assignment. Ultimately, the purpose of this task was to foster a

professional conversation amongst peers based on a video of my lesson.

Revision

After watching the video and reading the feedback in Edthena I realized that I would only

make a few classroom adjustments. I would have changed the position of the camera so the

observers could see more of the video. I would have changed the seating proximity between a

student and I due to his unsafe sitting choices. Finally, I would have given them less time to

practice their play so they had more time for reflection and feedback.

Reflection

Utilizing positive reinforcement is one of my classroom management goals for this year.

After watching my videos from Sped 775 practicum for part one of my master’s project I could

see the confidence and growth in some of my techniques and strategies. While I was completing

Sped 875 practicum I wanted to take the knowledge and feedback I gained from my courses and

implement it into my curriculum. When I was given the challenge to create a social skills lesson

at first, I didn’t grasp the importance of this assignment and how it could assist me in classroom

management.

Teaching the students social skills created a culture of empathy in the classroom. I found

it easier to have the students work in centers and in small groups without teacher directions.

However, I also learned that these skills are not one and done but they need to be revisited

periodically in order to solidify a harmonious classroom environment.
