Reflection (to be completed after discussion of Peer Review with colleague): e.g. how did you feel about
conducting a formal observation? How did your colleague feel about being observed? How did you feel
about discussing your observations with your colleague after the lesson? How did your colleague react to
your assessment? Did she agree with your evaluation? Which of the suggestions you made will your
colleague apply in her next lesson? Do you and your colleague feel that this was a valuable experience?
Why/Why not?

During the observation, I felt comfortable that I had the skill and ability to express my opinion as I became
part of the learning process that I sought during my studies in achieving it. My colleague Reem felt during
her observation her enthusiasm and happiness as she tried to do her best to contribute to explain the lesson
to students in an easy and innovative way contribute to their interaction with them and attract their attention
to the lesson.

Therefore, in discussing my observation with my colleague Reem, I felt a sense of self-confidence,


responsibility, and courage because these observations will contribute to the improvement of students'
education. The reaction of my colleague Reem was a good direction towards my evaluation, where she
showed her positive and negative aspects in the way to explain the lesson. My friend Reem has agreed and
understanding, self-confident and ambitious personality who is always looking for the best. One of the
suggestions that I made to my colleagues Reem, is to develop students' skill so that students can absorb
information in the right way.

It is a fun and valuable experience for me and my colleague Reem because it helped us to improve our skills
in preparing activities that fit the level of students, and increased our self-confidence.

Please share feedback immediately following the observation once the forms are
completed.
