Regarding the teacher’s explanations, they were very clear. Generally, the students caught the information quickly. Maybe, the level of English that most of them already had was of great help too. Another positive aspect to remark was that the host teacher was very well organized to work and to give instructions. It was good because students did not get confused about what they had to do.
Students also, find it easier to connect to others that are the same gender as them according to University Language (a website). Lastly, girls and boys feel more comfortable when they’re around their own gender. This is because they don’t have to worry about how they look or what they say. This gives students more opportunity to participate in classroom discussions. That is according to the National Education
Differentiation during a lesson has now become an important part of behaviour for learning. Students need to be motivated and challenged at the same time during a lesson. This would greatly bring down the opportunity or chance for any sort of misbehaviour. Building on from the idea of lesson planning, a teacher has to be aware that they use positive and different use of questioning in the class to promote good quality thinking. (Rogers, 2015) To further highlight what Kyriacou (2009) states, there appear to be three central and crucial aspects to pupils’ engagement during a lesson.
Teaching social skill is as important as teaching academics. There are some steps we can use to improve social skills in children. First, we should Introductory activities to help student learn about one another such as make group students in a large circle or small and have them say anything about themselves word that can describe them it could be a favorite color, animal. Teachers should Maintain continuous contact with student, especially those who are shy. Ask them to make comment or ask questions.
Below we will look at the few different activities that can be adopted in a class: • Group activities – students will be more motivated to participate in class when they are in groups. The teacher can choose different groups with mixed ability students. This will provide them with the opportunity to interact with their peers and to discuss their ideas. Presentations, oral debates and research projects will prove beneficial for them and this can keep them motivated to perform
Sometimes teacher will provide some challenging question to students, it is because the teacher in learner centered understand each student development progress. Teacher will be able to evaluate each students learning process, and it will help the teacher to scaffold each students to higher level. During the discussion, teacher also be able identify some of the students have learning difficulties, therefore teacher will be able to differentiate and created the better learning level or context to each student, and it can show how the student being support by their teacher.

Like stated before, it gives the teacher to see where the students ' strong points are or where their weaknesses are and need to work on that specific topic. When having assessments as the teacher it helps them know where their students are at with the lesson and it makes the students know that learning is an important concept in school. By students realizing this it makes them take school seriously and want to do well in class. If the students, see the teacher caring about them and working with them they will be more willing to take their studies thoughtfully and if the students still do not understand they know the teacher will be willing to
While I observed the classroom, the teacher was doing small group time, so she was with the students in the back reading, and the teachers focus is on the children she is working with, while the rest of the classroom were doing their group and partner work. Yet, the children were loud and unfocused, and this is where most situations would arise with children. I would manage the class behavior by setting up a timer and saying they have to finish a certain amount of work or book by when the time is up. In conclusion, observing this classroom was a great experience being able to see the different strategies, management and teaching styles a teacher varies from one another. It is important to view different strategies and styles to be able to figure out what your own is.
Men and women can pursue any interest or occupation, but have to mind the gulf between essential natures of girls and boys argues for separate classrooms or schools for some, with gender specific instructional method of learning as mention by Sax and Gurian (Liben 2015; Signorella and Bigler 2013b). In other words, this ability allows tutor to specifically design teaching methods and classes which potentially reach the students understanding of a specific topic or lesson. For example, girls are often empowered to be leaders while boys on the other hand are thought the method of collaboration. With the suitable environment, students will quickly adapt and feel comfortable venturing into non-traditional subjects. For girls, subjects like mathematics, woodwork and computers comes into play.
I asked few pairs to role play the conversation for the class. Unfortunately, there were just two students who they could present the conversation. Hence, I used a new task which its aim was to encourage the students to look at their partners while practicing conversation. I pointed out to the students that it is important to look at your partner when speaking and then I explained the task. They should work in pairs in this way: student (1) looks briefly at the first line of the conversation and tries to remember it.
