PART ONE: NOTES FROM OBSERVATION OF THE LESSON

PROFESSIONAL SUPERVISOR MIGHT COMMENT ON: (suggestions only please comment on aspects which seem relevant)

Quality of lesson planning Use of routines Advance organization


Establishing a positive classroom Engagement Success in meeting learning


climate Majority of students outcomes

LESSON PLANNING:
Muhammads lesson planning was imaginative, realistic and well-conceived for the students in
this class. In lesson 1, the two x unity activities allowed room for student creativity and
evaluation of the story their compositions conveyed. In lesson 2, opportunity was given for
students to apply knowledge.

CLASSROOM CLIMATE:
Muhammad has a strong teacher presence and a lovely sense of humor. He knew students
names (and personalities) and used practical examples which resonated with their cultural
milieu.

NOTE: A comprehensive report of comments written during the double period, in relation to the
timing and routines of the lessons, were given to Muhammad for further reference. These
identified his strengths (using *) and minor points to work on (using )

STENGTHS
Thorough lesson planning with clear Success Criteria; imaginative and purposeful teaching
and learning activities
Humorous approach relaxed, confident, un-phased by a technical glitch and clearly
enjoys teaching this subject and these students
Displayed convincing technological knowledge and competencies
Praised students responses (e.g. to Instagram discussion/postings) and ideas
Good questioning (most of the time) which improved during the double period
Connected effectively with the most engaged students

AREAS TO WORK ON
Pushing students further (cajoling and coaxing) rather than accepting a single response to
a question
Encouraging more students to respond (instead of the same few students); think about
how you can draw others in; use what do you think.? questions to avoid expectation of
a right answer
Stating timeframes/parameters to manage students time and keep the pace going
Noticing what is happening in the room (e.g. students texting on mobiles; who is
working and who isnt; whether students have written anything for the written task)
Using a drip-feed approach, e.g. explain only activity 1 and complete this before
introducing activity 2; do one thing at a time; makes transitions flow more easily
Using the board more to write up key words (i.e. verbal instructions married with visual
prompts unity, proportions, positioning). When you wrote visual hooks and teasers
and discussed these with students, accompanied by verbal and visual examples, it was
really effective
Insisting on all students paying attention during command/instruction giving (look this
way thanks use thanks as an expectation)
Paying as much attention the end of the lesson as to the beginning (rather than
restating the SC, ask students what they learnt today, e.g. five things)
