Lesson Reflection

Good Essays
The lessons that I had planned for this week proved to be very challenging and somewhat wasteful. However, the good thing about this whole ordeal is that I have become more aware of what works and does not work for the students. I also have a better understanding of how important it is to check for students understanding and keep them engaged throughout the entire lesson. Every one of my lesson plans included powerpoints that would present the content for the subject of my lesson. I had even included quizzes at the end some of my powerpoint to engage the students. I got two different reaction to my powerpoints: disinterest and confusion. The students were either not paying attention to the powerpoint at all or needed further clarification than I had provided through the powerpoint and my lecture. I had planned on leading a …show more content…
However, I fully understand that I am learning just as the students are learning. I am learning about them as learners and how to differentiate my teaching for them. I also am learning about the importance to including all the learning styles to engage each and every student into the lesson. I now know that every teacher will encounter problems and must be flexible enough to employ a multitude of approaches when teaching a lesson. My role as a teacher holds great responsibility because I have job of educating students according to their needs and that will require many trials and errors to fully perfect. I am also happy to have my cooperating teacher to guide me educate me about her students and about the job of teaching as well. Everyday is never the same just like every student is not the same. Because of this, I now know how important it is to look for opportunities to engage my

    I am going to have to get control of my classroom, have my students follow my procedures by using positive reinforcement, and reflective learning of my pedagogy. The students in the classroom come from diverse cultures, so it is important that I am able to teach to every standard for every student. Obtaining control of my classroom will result into a good semester by having the students understand my expectations and theirs. My teaching style will have the students motivated to learn and retain the information. I have to have interactive lesson plans that get the students out of their seats and have a hands on approach to what they are learning other than just drill and kill methods.…

    My cooperating teacher makes this look so easy, but she told me that classroom maintenance is something that I will learn as I progress as a teacher. She mentioned to me that it is all about “knowing my students”. I must say, I agree with the sentiment, because she has students who are so eager to learn, but a select few cause disruptions and can sometimes make the work environment a little hectic. I can already see that this is something that I will have to get adjusted to when I make my transition from student to teacher. I’ve always been the type of person to take on a challenge, and I think my personality will make for a great teacher.…

    Understanding the material is the most important part for the student to learn; this is what learning is. I want to make sure that every lesson plan I make, reaches every student in my classroom. I do not one single student falling behind because I was not able to differentiate a lesson plan. This is why altering a lesson to fit the needs of every student is extremely necessary. When creating the differentiation procedures, I really tried my best to organize the strengths and weakness of my students so that they would be able to learn from this lesson.…

    For instance, as agreed by all the students, teachers in ESL classroom should employ different types of questions to make teaching and learning process more effective and enhance learners’ proficiency in the target language. Motivation in classroom brings students participation and promotes interaction in classroom though there are many classrooms which seem that the students lack motivation and interest in what teacher is teaching or discussing. This is frequently due to the fact that teacher lacks effective and proper questioning skills to keep students actively involved and attracted to the lesson being taught (Critelli & Tritapoe, 2010).

    There are many times that I plan out differentiation for my students on my lesson plans, but I have some trouble implementing them once I start teaching. I get so caught up with the original task at hand that I forget that all students learn at different levels. In turn, I teach to all the students who can learn due to the methods of teaching that I have provided. Students who cannot learn from the way that I am teaching tend to fall into the background. I feel that if I had prepared myself to provide the intervention or remediation assignments to the students that need it I would be able to help students learn at their own pace and at a higher rate.…

    Lesson Plan Self-reflection and Evaluation A self-evaluation is a powerful tool that always helped me to strive to become a better teacher. Reflecting on and evaluating my teaching after a lesson was done, gave me insights that saved me lots of trouble and time throughout my teaching career. Even a few brief evaluative notes on a lesson plan helped me immensely the next time I had to teach that lesson. In the rush of teaching, and due to time constraints, I was sometimes tempted to skip self-evaluation. There were always plenty of other pressing things that needed to be done.…
