I present to you, part one of a four part series that looks at the "graded" Mr. Silva-Brown. At the end of each year I give out a report card with questions about my performance during the year.
The questions are:
-One a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being excellent), rate Mr. Silva-Brown's teaching this semester.
-Was I well organized?
-Did you understand what was going on?
-Do you think I have improved since September?
-Did you feel safe?
-Were students treated equally with respect?
-What grade do you think you earned this semester?
-On a scale of 1 (didn’t care) to 10 (total focus), how would you rate your effort put towards this class this semester? Explain.
-What did I do well?
-What recommendations can you give Mr. Silva-Brown?
-Give one piece of advice for next years students.
Today, I'll give you the numbers rating. The rating is first, followed by how many students rated me at that level. .
Here are the results from question #1:
My average is an 8.8, a B+. This is lower than last year and the first time I’ve gone backwards in five years. Here are the contrasts from past years.
