When you apply for National Board Certification, you have to video tape yourself teaching. Today, I'm supposed to be watching my tape and analyzing my methods. I am told to ask myself these questions: Did I capitalize on those "teachable moments"? Did I facilitate or lecture? Are my students highly engaged? How do I ensure fairness and equity? Is my lesson challenging enough?
Want to know the only question running through my mind as I watch the tape?
Why did I wear those shoes?
