1.What is one thing that that Mr. Ruggles does well?
This semester Mr. Ruggles has followed the structure of an assignment very well. Such as the position paper, you helped us do every step. You did not just tell us to write a paper, you walked us through it step by step.
2. What is one thing that Mr. Ruggles can improve upon?
You can probably improve upon your discipline, when you say you are going to punish someone, do it.
3. Rank these on a scale of one to five (with five being the highest) and leave a one-sentence explanation explaining your number:
a. How would you rank Mr. Ruggles’ communication skills? (Verbal, nonverbal, written)
4, your communications is good, sometimes the homework assignments are a little unclear though.
b. How would you rank Mr. Ruggles’ lessons (are they interesting and meaningful)
4, it is very structured and easy to follow.
c. How would you rank Mr. Ruggles’ classroom management techniques
5, you manage the class well, we are not the easiest class to deal with so you put up with us well.
d. How would you rank Mr. Ruggles’ assessments (graded fairly, timely, and well done)
4, your assignments are necessary and useful
e. How would you rank Mr. Ruggles’ use of technology (website, PowerPoint, etc.)
3, I don’t really see you using technology much besides power points.
f. How would you rank Mr. Ruggles’ attitude and excitement for teaching this class?
5, you are always excited and ready to teach.
4. What is the most fun and/or meaningful activity that you have completed in this class? Why?
The most meaningful activity this year is probably the paragraph structure examples because without them I wouldn’t know what/how I should write the paragraph.
5. What assignment did you not enjoy? Why?
I did not enjoy the peer editing activates because it never helped me see anything especially because you and Mrs. Smith were going to edit it anyway.
6. What else can I do to help you in the classroom?
Work time, work time, work time, that is always the most helpful thing any teacher can do.

1.)This year Mr. Ruggles did very well on helping us through every step in our position papers.

2.)I personally think that you don't give us enough time to do a certian part on something, and you tend to treat us like we're in college even though we're in freshman year.

3.)
a.] 3. Your communication skills are good, but sometimes things can get a little fuzzy

b.] 4. They are very interesting and provide us with a way to see things differently if we don't understand.

c.] 4. We're definitely not the easiest class to teach and you deal with us pretty well.
d.] 4. You do really good on grading.
e.] 4. Your PowerPoint’s and use of technology are good. Like how you show us examples from the webpage that we can all look at.
f.] 4. You are always excited, but some days you are a little temperamental and impatient. Which I understand because of our class.
4.) I would say that the funnest thing was how you taught us the paragraph structure. If you didn’t then all my paragraphs probably wouldn’t even make sense.
5.) I didn’t enjoy the essay because it took a bunch of time to redo every little thing and I fell behind on it.
6.) I can’t think of anything else at this time that you could help more with.
7.) you’re an awesome student-teacher! :DD

1. You have a strict guideline of what we are going to do and accomplish in our class period, we make the most of our time.

2. You can improve on maybe making smaller or more manageable homework portions because while working on this writing assignment to change the world I think most of the class could not keep up.

3.
3a) 5 You tell us what we are going to do in a class period and you tell us exactly to the point.

3b) 3 They are pretty meaningful but like I said before I think it is just too much for lots of people for assignments.

3c) 3 I think that our class probably is not the easiest class to teach and I think that you just need to take more authority.

3d) 5 You get our work and whatever else back to us in a timely manner and it is graded fairly.

3e) 4 You like to use technology, I can tell but it is just a little different from last semester when we did everything on the computers, when now we just use the computers on like work days or specified days.

3f) 4 I think you are excited and passionate almost all of the time but I think it disappears after a while with our class's behavior

4. The most meaningful assignment was probably the pln's because it showed how some things in this world were happening and gave statistics.

5. I did not really enjoy this writing assignment to change the world because I think it ended up getting pretty frustrating for the class and I don't think that most people were really into it or with it at the end.

6. You help us in the classroom well

7. None

1. This semester Mr. Ruggles has been very helpful with our assignments by asking us what we need help with.
2. He could improve on making sure we are all keeping up with our current assignments and doing all the work we are supposed to do.
3. 4, Mr. Ruggles is always very explanatory during class making sure we know what we are supposed to be doing.
4. 3, most of the lessons he has taught so far have been interesting.
5. 3, he is pretty good at managing the class but sometimes kids still mess around.
6. 4, he grades fairly and always gives us good feedback on the things we are struggling with.
7. 5, we use technology all the time in class from power points to lap tops.
8. 4, he is always ready to teach and get the class rolling.
9. The most meaningful activity we have done in class is the format of the position paper. This was very helpful to me because it helped me format my paper.
10. I didn’t like finding all the research for the paper because it was very time consuming and challenging.
11. Keep giving me good feedback on the things that I am having trouble on.
12. Keep it up you have been doing well so far and thanks for all the help.

1. Mr. Ruggles is a very good teacher and the best thing that he is good at is helping us with the steps of writing our paper. He doesn't just give us a sheet of paper and tell us to write about whatever, but he goes through steps to improve our writing.
2. One thing Mr. Ruggles can improve on is giving us smaller assignments every night. I felt very rushed on the asignments and felt that I wasn't turning in my best work because I was just trying to finish it on time.
3.
a. 4: Your communication skills is very good, but sometimes I feel that when you give the homework assignments, that they aren't always told clearly and I get very confused on when to do it by.
b. 3: Many times they are meaningful and very interesting, but once in a while I wonder why we are doing that lesson
c. 4: You manage the class very well everyday and I know that you are very patient with us, but one thing that happens only once in a while is that we can get away with stuff more often. ex: talking
d. 3: Most of the time the assignments are helpful, but then sometimes we don't even turn in certain assignments
e. 2: Your not using the computer at all besides our agenda for the week so im not really sure how you are with technology
f. 4: You are always ready to teach and you are happy to be in our class all the time.
4. The most meaningful activity for me would be the outline set-up. This is because it helps me start out with my ideas and puts them into place where they belong.
5. The assignmtent that I didn't enjoy would be the quote and citation. I know that we have to do it for our project, but I just don't like it very much and I like puting things into my own words and perspective instead.
6. The most important thing that you can do to help us as a class is give us more worktime. It is very important to us and it is also important to have you walk around so we can ask questions if we need to.

1. you are very good at listening. you always seem to hear what we have to say even if it doesnt relate to the topic. you also have made sure that we all are paying attention and answer everyones questions.
2. you could maybe just loosen up a bit. sometimes you seem to be very tense and stiff. another thing that you could improve is being more animated. Have more character while you teach.
3A. 4. your communication is pretty clear, sometimes i get somewhat lost, but overall you seem to communicate to us pretty well.
3B. 3. I like your lessons, but I feel like you could do so much more and take more risks instead of just a lesson. also just add some more character.
3C. 3. We are a very difficult class to manage, so i think you have done a really great job for such a difficult class. sometimes i think that you are almost a little to demanding and always correcting the class.
3D. 5. i think you are very fair and give about the right amount of useful assignments.
3E. 5. i can tell you really like using technology and the powerpoints are cool.
3F. 3. you start off pretty excited to teach, but again you could be more animated.
4. The most meaningful activity we have done in your class is probably the paragraph forms because it really helped.
5. The editing never helped me because i was always so confused and i knew that you were going to edit it anyway.
6. More work time would be great. other then that you have been a pretty great teacher!!
