I use this diary in conjunction with the Weekly program and reflection diary. Both are excellent for covering all aspects of program and EL, particularly during A&R. Our assessor was able to review much of my work via the diaries. These diaries help in so many ways!
Hi Jody, we love to hear that our Diaries supported you through Assessment and Rating! Thank you for sharing your experiences with us!
I have found the diary to be somewhat useful. However, not having a ribbon/page bookmark, it can be difficult when in a hurry to locate what page you are on. The checklist is ok, not what i was thinking for a new EL. For me as a new EL, I was hoping for clearer reflective questions to ask my team.
Hi Nicole, thank you for your review. We noted the need for a bookmark and have included one in our collection that also includes synonyms for everyday language, https://butlerdiaries.com/products/bookmark-alternative-words-to-use-in-observations. We hope this could be of help to you.
A reflective resource to support new Educational Leaders in their role is a wonderful idea. We are currently working on further reflective resources to support educators across different roles, we would love to work with you to create a resource that would support you in your new role. Please get in touch with our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's been a great resource for organising my day/month and as a tracking tool. I liked the fact that I could buy a shorter version to suit my needs.
