Reflection Assignment
Reflect on the readings and videos assigned for this module.  Identify the Principal Standard and TExES Competency that is most aligned to the content presented for this module.  Justify your selection.  For example, if you believe that the content presented this week is most aligned to Principal Standard 2 and TExES Competency Five, share your rationale. Your rationale must include specifics from the instructional materials reviewed for this week.  In the reflection, your beliefs, experiences, recommendations or implications for current or future practice should be included.  For example–What does this practice mean to you as a current or aspiring administrator?  How does this information assist you in doing a better job or being a better administrator?  How would this information help your current administration in terms of their practices and implementation of policies and protocols? Were there two or three concepts that stood out to you-or scream to you that the framers of the policies were on the right track or completely wrong.
