I believe I made thoughtful references to the materials and personal connections. I did cover all facets of the module but am not sure that I went “beyond what is required.” I try very hard to express myself yet keep the blogging on a professional level and write with consideration to ELA conventions. My posts were submitted on time (prior to class). I try to read Katie’s blog thoughtfully. I love her different opinions and try to learn and grow from reading the different perspectives. I found it very interesting that we rated the children’s work so differently. It was great to read about her processes. I commented on Katie’s blog and included additional material and information where I could. I think I met all the requirements (except for going above and beyond) and therefore would give myself a 9.
