Microteaching at NSJH
This time, I worked even harder on reading up as much as I can about reading strategies and putting all the resources together in order to create a complete lesson plan of microteaching mainly targeting important skills that help bolster reading comprehension. Once again, I feel thankful for the opportunity to not only benefit the participants of the workshop but more importantly, myself, in terms of self-growth.
