The dreaded "weakness question"....here is my answer for my weakness. Let me know if I should steer clear or if it works/sounds good(I promise this is my last question of the night) My weakness is Writing. I feel the other subjects come naturally to me and I can think of engaging meaningful lessons easily. While I am able to teach writing well it doesn't come as naturally for me. In my past experience writing is the subject many students dread and it's challenging for. Many of my high students who excel in other areas have even struggled in writing. Since this has been my experience in the past it makes me overthink my lessons. I feel there is so much to teach with writing and it's harder to be engaging and exciting. I have however found collaboration with collegues has helped (because that's what teaching is about, sharing so you can help where you are strong and vica versa) and I have also had curriculum leaders come in my room to help as well. Also, anytime P/D is offered with writing I am there. I want to implement the Writers Workshop model into my classroom.... then I wanna say something about wanting to work on keeping mini lessons mini b/c I find there's always so much I want to do but it's important to keep the lessons short and pick 1 thing to focus on Thoughts?
