Great presentation of the lesson with ongoing feedback and active learning prompts. Truly enjoyable to watch and see the students engaged.

Such an inspiring lesson! I wish I could observe her reading instruction for an entire week! I love the accountable talk and how actively engaged students are in their learning!

This has been such a great experience. The strategy is amazing and something I can't wait to try in my classroom.

I can see her passion and care for the students. The classroom is on task and cooperative and the students are engaged. It is clear each student is met where they are at and students are able to grow optimally.

I love how she says things like "raise the roof" in place of raise your hand. She is firm but calm. I love how all of her students are fully and actively engaged. Mrs. Jones is amazing!

EXCELLENT organization, class participation. I love involving the students in their own accountability
