My assessment results indicated the my colleagues felt most inspired to change the process in which students are receiving their lessons. Results were then split among
product and content. They also felt that the most challenging aspect to try and change the way their classrooms are currently ran is the time it would take to rethink
their lessons. A big aspect to this is our current school environment keeps us very busy and without a lot of free time. I hope that they will keep in mind they can begin
this process with small changes because it does not take anything too drastic to make a positive impact. Lastly, my results indicated that my colleagues were overall
very satisfied with the presentation and that it left them inspired to try something new.
