As the school year winds to a close, I’ve asked my students to evaluate my class as their final assignment. It is part of my reflection process. I realize not every student will love every aspect of this English course, but it is valuable to find out from their perspective what is working and what isn’t.
Ultimately, I want my students to pursue life-long learning, but I have to model a desire to continue learning as well. I try to demonstrate through my own daily actions that I want to continue growing and improving my practice as a teacher. Evaluations are a great way to collect information.
