TO COMPETE THE GRIDS
1. Each cell is the intersection of particular teaching style or perspective with a category of learning goals.
2. As you look at a cell, ask yourself what percentage of your time is given to that mode of work.
3. Record your percentages in their cells. It's OK to have empty cells.
4. To finish, EITHER add up the columns OR circle the individual cells with the strongest scores.
FOR A MORE MEANINGFUL SCORE
Think of a specific teaching situation. Do both grids with that same context in mind. Try to choose ‘honestly’ rather than ‘ideally’ so you’ll get a picture of yourself as you are not as you think you should be or wish you were.
If you don’t have much or any teaching experience yet, experiment. Imagine yourself in past classes e.g. with your most effective former teacher and then again with the least effective teacher you ever had. Use your responses to create a profile for the teacher you want to be.
