Needing Reality Checks

Sometimes we get so involved in projects that we miss important features or details. When I get really involved with a project, I tend to get a little possessive about it. Does that sound familiar? What I found is that I need to pull back, get someone else’s input and try not to take any of the feedback personal. Who do I ask?

  • Members of my team
  • Advisory board
  • Teachers who might participate in the project
  • Create a survey and ask a random sampling of users
  • Partners

A reality check that might keep you focused: If you are creating a lesson or unit, refer to state or national standards to make sure you are meeting the appropriate requirements.
