Professional Reflection

Take a step back from your classroom and examine the video clip in relation to your own instructional practices. Use the questions below to spark discussion about instructional practices in department meetings, team meetings, or as a writing prompt in your own professional journal.

Consider:
  • What are the advantages of multi-age instructional activities? What are the difficulties?
  • Could Book Buddies work in your school? What would be the logistical difficulties? How might they be overcome?
