At the first class meeting after your group has finished teaching, turn in a self-evaluation as a group leader.
This evaluation is not of your whole group's effort but of your individual contribution to that effort.
1. Print out and complete the Group-Leader Self-Evaluation form.
2. In addition to this form, write a three-page self-evaluation.
The ability to analyze yourself is important to you as a teacher. Thus, this assignment will also be graded. For example, you might give your self a "B" as a group leader and, if your self-evaluation was well done, you could receive an "A" on the self-evaluation assignment. -- I reserve the right to refuse the grade you propose for yourself as a group leader; if I do not accept your grade, I will discuss it with you.
- Use the first paragraph of the evaluation to summarize your contributions to the group and propose a grade for yourself for this activity.
- Then spend most of the evaluation, at least two full pages, reflecting on the question: In the future, how could I improve as a group member? Given that it is always easier to change yourself than to change others and that as a teacher you will often be working as a group member with colleagues -- perhaps colleagues similar to your 4800 group members -- how can you change your behavor in future to lead to better functioning of the group?
