Teacherscribe’s Teaching Tip #112
Consider hosting a student from either NCTC’s Intro to Education program or UND’s Teaching and Learning 250 class.
Whenever I have someone observing me, whether it’s an administrator, a colleague, or a future-teacher, I’m always hyper aware of my behavior and practices while I teach.
That makes me more conscious of my craft. Plus, it offers me a chance to reflect on my practice with someone who brings a different perspective to my classroom.
But the benefit isn’t only for us teachers. It’s an important opportunity for the observers, especially those who are thinking of going into education.
