In order to create capacity, we must realize that it is an ongoing process that requires a high level of commitment to learning and continuous improvement. Creating this capacity requires specific, intentional, and deliberate actions. Deliberate, systematic reflection is essential to ensure meaningful and deep learning related to creating capacity for learning and equity. – Mary Hooper and Victoria Bernhardt
To put this theory into practice requires three cognitive processes: Review, Reflect, and Refine. Review key concepts and ideas; Reflect on experiences and observations; and Refine how you will put these theories into practice to create capacity for learning and equity in your classroom or school.
As educators, we want to see every one of our students engaged in the learning process. As we take time each day to process how our lesson went, we can make adjustments that will improve our teaching methods and increase the engagement of our students. We want to create an environment where our students look forward to coming to class and discovering what new information we have to share with them.
