One barrier to improving your practice with TeachFX is simply getting in the habit of recording your classes. Maybe you’re considering which class would be a good one for TeachFX to analyze…and you’re thinking about it so much that you haven’t recorded a class yet?? Maybe you’ve got…*duhn* *duhn* *duhnnn*…Analysis Paralysis. If so, I’ve created this helpful flow chart for any teacher who’s trying to figure out that eternal question:
Remember, as a teacher, you want your students more engaged all year, not just in one particular class period. So it’s better to look at your data on a regular cadence, rather than fretting about which lesson(s) to analyze each week. This helps you to start thinking regularly about student engagement and planning for more of it in your upcoming classes!
