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.

Whereas with my final teach I felt very comfortable teaching as I had a well prepared lesson plan that allowed me to do so. I believe I promoted both individual and shared learning.

One in particular I found stood out; Satisfaction – Allow a student to use a newly acquired skill in a realistic setting as soon as possible (Yelon, 1996). This one stood out for me because I used it with my students during the think pair share activity, they gained satisfaction by them telling me the correct answer with help from their
