Krystal's classroom is very safe, organized, inviting, and is conducive to learning. There is student work posted in the
room, she has a word wall identifying key terms, student grades are posted, absent work is available for students to
pick up.
Krystal has a definite bond with her students, and exhibits great classroom control. Krystal also utilized a lot of
technology- smartbaord, elmo, videos, etc. All students were engaged and on task for the entire hour.

-Describe the life of the average American during the Great Depression
-Explain the opposition to the New Deal
Krystal clearly communicates the expectations for learning and engages students in activities that are geared toward
enhancing their critical thinking skills.
