  1. This process takes practice and flexibility. The trust issue is essential along with that of respect in order for people to feel comfortable with feedback and actually apply suggestions.

  2. The LRP is a useful guide for scrutinizing rigor, alignment, and engagement with our lesson plans. The last activity was difficult since a well developed lesson plan cannot be created in 5 minutes; however, this did springboard our group into helpful feedback for improving and inserting additional elements. Today was useful. Vocabulary training was practical and useful.
