Reflection: My Final Teach From My Micro Teaching Experience

Decent Essays
The artefact I have chosen to show my achievement in this module is the lesson plan (Appendix 1) of my final teach from my micro teaching experience in this module. The reason I have chosen this artefact is because I believe throughout the semester I have really developed my skills in writing lesson plans. This lesson plan was the strongest I believe. I have chosen the lesson plan because I feel it really relates to the learning outcome; Students will engage with pupils in order to develop effective, creative and imaginative strategies that promote individual and shared learning. The reason I have chosen this learning outcome is because it relates to Appendix 1 very well as I believe my engagement with the students throughout this lesson …show more content…
Kyriacou states that “Effective teaching is primarily concerned with setting up a learning activity for each pupil which is successful in bringing about the type of learning the teacher intends.” (Kyriacou, 2007) Reading this quote and looking at Appendix 1, I believe I set up some good learning activities where the pupils showed learning was there and were very engaged in the activities at the same time. These learning activities that I set up in my final teach really varied and I believe this really helped the pupils to earn. I believe it also made it more enjoyable because it wasn’t all writing down on paper; I had a final activity at the end that required each student to tick the box on the board. In my lesson plan I believe I set challenging expectations but they were reasonable ones that were very clear and achievable. Kyriacou has an essential teaching skills list where he states a few points that are very important to enable a good teach. The first one he has is planning and preparation, these are the skills required in selecting the correct educational aims and learning outcomes that are intended for the lesson. (Kyriacou, 2007) With this statement and looking back over the course of the module with our tutor, setting clear and achievable learning outcomes and transferring them into the class is what makes for a very good teach. Lesson planning is very important in a lesson; it allows you to cater for the needs of your students while it also gives you a structure to work off of while teaching it. Kyriacou states that a lesson plan enables you to think clearly and specifically about the type of learning you wish to occur in a particular lesson. (Kyriacou, 2007) From this and looking back on my lesson plan I did think clear enough about my final lesson plan before doing it. I have discovered from getting guided by my tutor throughout the semester I

    I have found the students feedbacks very valuable as I can know directly want students think and want for the lessons, which can be hard for me or other teachers to know.

    Although I did have some lessons that were not that successful I found this to be my most successfully applied plan and activity.

They also offer critical and supportive feedback to students (Chen & Lin, 2009). It has been indicated by Rubio (2009) that assessment can be an effective learning process.

    For example, my school is a thinking map school and these organizers have been proven to be successful in aiding students with reading comprehension and writing. Therefore, it is vital for teachers to continuously examine ways to include thinking maps their lesson in order to help students get their thoughts on paper or take notes. Furthermore, Wilson, Faggella-Luby & Yan (2013) discuss the significance of including activities that are on students’levels (p. 29). This goes back to scaffolding the lesson for students. Not to mention, teachers need to ask key questions to get students thinking and having dialogue about the topic.…

    This suggests that through the microteaching procedure, training teachers are given an opportunity to refine their artform prior to entering an actual classroom. During my microteaching, I received much needed practice on lesson planning, delivering a lesson, remaining calm under classroom pressure and assisting student. I was also able to gain some experience on the content knowledge of my subject, which is extremely beneficial as I am a beginning teacher. Remesh (2013) states that, “microteaching helps to promote real-time teaching experiences” whilst Ananthakrishnan (1993) claims that, “microteaching helps in eliminating errors and builds stronger teaching skills for the beginners and senior teachers.” Through this form of guided practice, teachers are able to develop their skills which in turn prevents them from making these errors in the future.
