RISE Week was a fabulous opportunity to stop and reflect on my own teaching practice. The implementation of the feedback and goal setting process is always challenging with a new group of students who are unfamiliar with the process. Over time, with the success of the whole school implementation of the process, this will become easier each year. My main focus moving forward will be to ensure that the class is on task and working towards achieving their individual learning goals whilst teacher/student conferences are taking place.
The process of having a RISE buddy to reflect with and bounce ideas off was positive and helped to both develop consistency of ideas, whilst simultaneously strengthening collegial relationships across the school. I valued the time spent with my partner and look forward to developing my own practice further, in the future.
