Teachers Need Peer Review
Dr. McKee provides some peer assessment and evaluation of Harry’s in-classroom learning. Harry recounts the strengths and weaknesses of a variety of assignments and in-class strategies. Harry is seeking broader acceptance of honest self-evaluation and embracing the failures in pedagogy that leads to learning and improved student learning outcomes.

“Since the Fall of 2013 I have evolved my approach to teaching with an assortment of pedagogically diverse approaches.
I have been seeking a knowledgeable peer with whom I could present a self-assessment; I believe only a frank and honest accounting of my efforts will allow me to continue to grow and learn as a teacher.”
On April 7th, 2015, Dr. Doug McKee took the time to listen to my self-assessment while offering suggestions, insights and lessons from his own classroom. Dr. McKee is the co-host of the Teach Better podcast (http://teachbetter.co/)”
