Describe the strengths of your instructional techniques, strategies and classroom management. Describe the strengths of student engagement.

Describe the weaknesses of your instructional techniques, strategies and classroom management. Describe the weaknesses of student engagement.

One weakness was not giving the students clear directions of my expectations of the assignment. I should have explained to them that I wanted them to use more describing words to make the writing better.
