EDPY 303 Olivia Heidt February 12, 2014 Chapter 4 Team Teaching Reflection
Our assessment presentation was on writing effective multiple choice questions when creating a test for students. I believe this chapter was very important for everyone as we have never discussed how to write multiple choice questions in any other class. The one thing our group still struggle with but in the end I thought we did a great job was finding an effective way to deliver the eighteen rules. I thoroughly believe that the way we executed our information was the best way possible. Based on the exit passes that we handed out at the end of the lesson, most students were surprised by all the rules and clarified that they need to read the chapter over. This chapter could have been discussed the whole class and our group could have had multiple activities to help students remember the rules. It is hard with such a small time frame to deliver a lesson and activity for students to remember. We discussed that getting students up and moving would be the best way to collaborate with one another and have active learning going on. Student’s discussion did seem to be on task as I circulated throughout the classroom and probed groups with higher level thinking questions. Our communication as a group was phenomenal, we all got along great and didn’t make a decision without a group consensus. We met everyday leading up to this presentation for a minimum of two hours. None of the work was done alone we each did 3 posters for the rules and had a fair workload for that. We all discussed what should go on our presentation while one group member was sitting with us making the prezi. For the homework this was done all together as well so we all knew what questions were gonna be on their along with what we wanted the answers to be. I enjoyed working with my team as they all contributed ideas and took people’s ideas positively. The homework was very tough for students to hand in and for all students to understand where to put documents. We sent out an email reminding people and some people had theirs in the wrong folder. We had to have students email theirs late but we understood what happened and did give feedback to these
student’s. Personally I think we all need a proper breakdown on how to share and where to put our homework. Lots of people seemed very lost on where to put their documents and whether it was for marks or not. Overall our presentation I believe went very well and I think we delivered the information the best way we could with this time frame.
