This assignment provides experience and concrete practice with the philosophies and pedagogies that will guide your future teaching.

Each student must either observe a teacher teaching or teach a child a literacy activity and write a reflective report that connects what was done to an essential question and/or SELA/TEKS objective. We want you to look at the big picture. How does this activity fit into the goals of a literacy educator (you)?


  1. Even if working in a group, each student is responsible for completing this activity & writing a reflective report,
  2. The reflective report should be at least a one page memo
  3. You must document any materials/lessons plans that you used in an appropriate form (MLA/APA works cited).
