I submitted goals at the beginning of the year, so now it is time for me to reflect on these goals and my progress:
- I wanted to incorporate more culture. I think I accomplished this goal by my Halloween celebration, use of authentic resources and news articles. It was harder to maintain the news articles than I would like, and I look forward to including more next year. I was also really proud about my readings about artists, and I want to write more of those that can be used every year (instead of my news articles that really cannot be reused.)
- I wanted to assess my students more on speaking. While I felt that I was able to incorporate more speaking activities into my daily activities with VoiceThreads and exclusively speaking Spanish, I did not assess students like I wanted to. I was also really excited about the use of EdPuzzle to use more listening activities, too. I will continue to work on assessing speaking this next year!
- My last goal was to present at a conference. I presented at EdCamp, and I was really excited about doing that! I still want to submit a proposal and be accepted to present. The Maryland proposal is due on June 1st! Will I get my act together?! I think I keep going back in forth about my focus though. Feel free to leave advice on what I could present on based on reading my blog!
I am always excited to reflect on what I have accomplished and what I still want to continue to work on. How did you do with your goals this year?
