CLASSROOM OBSERVATION REPORT

By Cecilia Mogollon Abreu

1. The activity of observation was realized in the 1st and 2nd year, both sections C of

English class, and each class has between 20 23 students, the teacher is Jhoan

Moncada, in the U.E Colegio Nueva Republica. This observation started on May 19.

2. Preparation.

The teacher knew the topics that he was going to teach to his students, he teacher only

use an English book and he had some students, who had a little bit of problems to

understand the language, even though the teacher were explained them in Spanish, but

with students of the 2nd year, he did not had any problem with them because they could

understand the lessons gave by him.

3. Presentation:

In the 1st year, the teacher started to explain them the auxiliary do and does, the different

rules used in regular and irregular verbs and how to ask questions, affirmative and

negative statements with them, after that he gave them lessons about the adverbs of

frequency. For the 2nd year, he did it too, when he explained them the future will and be

going to, and the present perfect. When the students had doubts of the lesson, the

teacher answered their questions carefully and satisfactorily and he always showed an

interest in, and enthusiasm for, teaching English in both classes

4. Execution/Methods

Uunfortunaly the teacher did not have a variety of activities to teach during the lesson in

both classes; he only passed the students on the board to write clauses with simple

present and adverb of frequency. In both classes, the teacher moved around the class
and asked to his students if they understood the classroom and remained them the

different rules used in the lesson, he already knew their names because some of them

behave badly or did not understand the lesson. With the 1st year, he did a review of the

simple present before the test to help them to understand the auxiliaries and the verbs,

and with his students of 2nd year, he did it with the future be going to and present

perfect. In both classes, the teacher used repetitions during the classes when he

introduced new vocabulary to construct new clauses.

5. Personal Characteristics

In both classes, the teacher was very patience when he responded the students doubts

with the verbs or using the auxiliaries, he also spoke them with a clarity, tone and

audibility of voice when he explained the lessons, the most of the time he used the

mother tongue to explain the lesson, but when he gave them some exercises or rules, he

had a good pronunciation and acceptable fluency.

6. Teacher/student motivation

In both classes, the teacher always encouraged them to try or to improve their

pronunciation, also when they wanted to passed on the board in order to practice the

lesson, and he was able to control and direct the class, he did not allow any bad

behavior by his students, of course the 1st years students were a little bit disorganized

because they wanted to participate in class, on the other hand, the 2nd year class, they

were very organized and they raised their in order to participate in the class.

I did like the experience, because it helps us to understand how we can prepare to be

good teachers in the future, and in my opinion the teacher should use more strategies or

technique like games, songs, role plays, even the technology in order to reinforce the

students learning.
