After over 20 years of teaching, I believe that the best way to increase my capacity to help others is to learn more about myself. To ensure successful learning, I include these four actions in weekly lesson plans, because knowing ourselves enables us to help others.
- Look for and document changes in your own learning
- Plan to learn while you teach
- Reflect on moments of success
- Make your perceptions of students visible to yourself
