Goals, hopes, and norms
Sometimes I feel my goals are as simple as staying above water, don't drown. Right now my goal is to create a list of digital tools to use for next year. I want to make sure that I do not forget all that I have learned this year during my Master's Program. Because of this goal of mine it made me realize that my audience, who I originally thought would be my students, needs to be other teachers. I want to create a resource for teachers with ideas for digital comprehension tools. I feel that is something that I have been wanting. Now that I have tried multiple tools I feel I am ready to do this. I think I would love to hear from my cohort more and what they are using and what works and doesn't work. Also, I do not have "a way with words" like a lot of my cohort does. I tend to simplify my words (into a second grade level) and sometimes I feel I need help editing my words. A thesaurus is my friend at times but having my peers help me edit and discuss would be great. I would also like to share ideas of things I have tried in my classroom that have worked to help support them. Some important group norms that I would like is being respectful to others (which I think this cohort is good at). Also, ending classes on time and being respectful of everyone's time.

Alicia, I agree, I too like simple ideas, this is so important for my students, what seems simple to me often takes me weeks to convey to my class. And sometimes I feel intimidated to admit how long it takes and how simple things need to be. I would so much like to know which tools are the easiest to teach and that have the most usefulness to my students, and are not frustrating to me because they work the same way each time I use them. I also would like the class to end on time. Please feel free to make as many comments as you like on my work, you are one of my end users, and those comments will be gold for me. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
