Reflection on the Lesson

One weakness of my lesson was the amount of time I had for the lesson. Each class is forty-six minutes long. However, during two classes during that week in my unit my cooperating teacher had to administer two Student Growth Objectives (SGO’s). One was a primary document analysis with short answers and another was a map skill with multiple choice questions. So, during my lesson on Modern Day Slavery and the European Slave Trade, he had to administer a Student Growth Objective. This one was only for fifteen minutes on map skills. So my lesson was shortened to thirty-one minutes instead of forty-six.
A second weakness was that I have should have draw out more from the students of the European Exploration examples of slavery. I should have strengthened this by showing the students a clip of European Exploration slavery or an interactive PowerPoint of visual images. If I did this, I believe that I could have made the argument and the connection to slavery today much stronger and powerful. Lastly, for the ending the lesson I should have asked the students to take part in the campaign to end slavery instead of just saying to them if they want to join the campaign go to the Walk Free Website. It should have been a written assignment where the students write a letter to one of their favorite companies and ask them to end the practice of slavery in their production of their products.
The strengths in my lesson are that the topic is very relevant to the students’ lives today. The article on Modern Day Slavery just came out that week. The students seemed to be engage in the discussion of the lesson and the questions I was asking of them. Many students were appalled at the fact that children are used a child soldiers and work in mines around the world to produce clothes and other goods that they enjoy. Even though the amount of time I had was limited because of the SGO exam, I felt I used it very affectively for what I wanted to accomplish.
Reflection on Student Work
The majority of my students did very well on the two summative assessments for the lesson: One was answering two questions based on the primary document and one was creating a journal entry to go with the other document. The student (labeled student 1) that I’m showing the work in did exceptionally well and succeeded my expectations. For the two short questions she directly quoted the sentences that described how the Portuguese trading activities are disrupting life in the Kongo. She makes a very important transition on explaining the quote by “The examples shows…” or “This is explaining how….” Her weakness is that she fails to use this in third reason for the Portuguese disrupting life in...
