What You Are Expected to Do

Lesson Reflection
Work to Submit:
  • Teaching and Learning Context Form
  • Video Recording of the Lesson
  • Video Commentary and Reflection Form

The 2017-2018 Ohio RESA asks Resident Educators to complete the Lesson Reflection. This task requires the Resident Educator to select an individual lesson, provide context for that lesson, record a video of their teaching, and to respond to a short series of questions about that lesson. These Commentary and Reflection questions ask Resident Educators to reflect on their lesson planning, instruction, and the outcomes achieved. 

Submission Deadlines

Resident Educators are required to upload and submit their Lesson Reflection by January 19, 2018.  After teachers submit their Lesson Reflection, trained assessors will evaluate the work and provide score reports by May 15, 2018.
