this semester, you will be working on a project called Collaborative
Inquiry: Reflection and Questions about Learning (CIRQL).
This project is geared to help you reflect and think carefully
about your students' understanding of the subject you are
teaching, the ways in which you assess them, and the responses
you make to meet their needs. CIRQL is divided into three
stages: before, during and after you teach. Navigate through
these stages via the above links to learn about how to complete
your CIRQL unit.
get started, this movie will give some advice from last semester's
student teachers about completing your CIRQL unit. These movies
require Windows Media Player.
you progress through the materials for the three stages you
will find short movies about each stage. The movie below is
a combination of all of these shorter movies.
