Teacher observation is most successful when the teacher and observer work together and reflect on the teaching behaviour. Critical Elements of Teacher Observation as Professional Development * Ensuring school leaders advocate and support teacher observation as a valid form of professional development * Building a community of trust among faculty * Establishing a school-wide commitment to the approach * Separating observation from the teacher evaluation
Teenagers are not the only loud people either. It does not matter the age one is they still can be loud including business men or women. Assuming that teenagers are loud and annoying is not fair to them, especially if they never did anything wrong. Munchy is trying to bring in customers, which is great, but he should do it another way so he will gain more customers and the teens can continue to go, especially since if one person or a group is too loud he can kick them out. “Business people are ALWAYS on their cell phones, having loud conversations themselves” (source 4 13).
The method of event sampling is more prefer by most of the observer as it is easier to be use. The observer can go on for what they are doing such teaching inside the classroom and only record when things happened. Before this, the observer need to decide what is the event and the behaviour that want to observe so that the observer can record down when the event happens. This method can help to identify what or who might have cause the happening of the incident or problems. We can know what behaviour too looks for or be focused and the analysis will become easier.
I have learned that teachers really have their job cut out for them and I soon would be in that shoes. It took patience to stick to my one subject and listen and watch everything that was happening when you are in a place with so much going on. The checklist the professor provided played a big role in me completing my assignment it was a great tool to look back and make sure that all points were being
Every time that I would attend my classes during the previous years of my study, I tend to observe my teachers while they were teaching in front as well as the behavior of my classmates. This is when I realized that teachers possess different attributes and made use of various strategies to meet the level of understanding of their students. I have also noticed that my classmates used to behave in a different manner depending on the presence of our teachers. It is during our Field Study that I have experienced to observe the classroom setting while sitting at the back. I usually sit either in front or middle part of the room so; I found my observation from that location as entirely different.
I observed many ways to go about classroom management. Each teacher approached it differently, depending on the grade they were teaching and who their students were. Every teacher greeted their students at the door at the beginning of every class, saying hello and asking questions to them about different activities and events they had going on the night before. Usually as the students were
If we show love and passion for what we do students will see the commitment we have for their learning process and will enjoy their experience in the classroom. Summary of observers During my practices I have been told by my observers what are the positive and negative things I do while I am in the classroom. According to my observers I have to work on the way that I give instructions using concept check, modeling or a different approach in order for students to understand completely the purpose of the activity. I also have to elicit from students any questions their classmates may have and give feedback to inform students about their performance. On the positive side I give students equal opportunities to participate, encourage pair and group work, I always have a good attitude during the whole class and I motivate my students so they can finish all of their activities and task within the
By choosing a comfortable teaching situation to be observed (as many of our less enthusiastic colleagues do) there is less to be gained in terms of professional development as teachers. I actually thought to myself I would take the opportunity to be peer observed in the setting of a challenging session. I thought that actually it would be the most useful time to have feedback on what was going on. I was having difficulty with a session and I wanted to work out why. Maybe not many of my colleagues would do the same thing, but I think that would be nice to encourage people to do that.
The students were highly engaged. I could say that the concepts to be learn were explicitly linked to ELLs’ background experience and past learning. I listened to the teacher’s speech and voice projection, it was appropriate (not too slow, not too fast), and she emphasized the importance of being respectful/active listeners. She ensured that each students had sufficient time to respond to her questions, and clarify if a student seemed confused (regarding the objectives). As the students did the group work, Mrs. Carbone foster noticing.
