Sarah's Notes
Do you cringe watching yourself on video? Is that really what I sound like?! Herein lies the power and necessity of learning from video. Without this kind of record, we teachers run the risk of only knowing what our classroom is like “in our own heads.” With it, we start to understand what our students experience.

As the summer winds down, think about how you can make use of a video camera in your classroom and how you are preparing to “hear your own voice.” And don’t forget to engage the help of trusted colleagues! We hope video will give you a perspective that evolves into more deliberate practice.

Enjoy: Get started with this DIY video
