Through the good environment of the school the child and the adolescent will be develop faster.Your reflection: 1. Would you like to teach in the school environment you just observed? Why?
Yes, because for me the school that I just observed is already conducive to learning. I like the location of the school; it can be locate easily because it is on the town proper. I will not suffer in transportation unlike the school in far places.2. What kind of school campus is conducive to learning? A kind of school campus that is properly organize, spacious enough to accommodate large numbers of students, has a complete facilities enough classrooms in a good location, clean, not noisy, free from bad odors, there are effective teachers, the school must be in a good condition and ensure the safety and protection of the students.3.

A kind of classrooms which is conducive for learning is well-lighted, well- ventilated, has an enough space, has its own comfort room inside the classroom, lots of instructional materials, and complete facilities which is necessary for the whole class. And the classroom must be a place where in learners feel belongingness and has an equal treatment to the pupils.4. In the future, how can you accomplish your answer in number 3? To accomplish a classroom which is conducive to learning in the future the best thing that I will do is by preparing myself to do this task and I will bear in mind that this is one of my goal so that I will strive hard to accomplish this.5. Write additional learning’s and insight s here: Through observation, I have learned a lot and one of those learning’s, is that the school environment/condition affects the student’s interest in learning.

Your reflections 1. While you were observing the learners, did recall your own experiences when you were their age? What similarities or differences do you have with the learners you observed? While I was observing the learners, I did recall my own experiences when I was at their ages . in similarity to them I am also playful and every time we seen our teacher coming we keep quiet and we behave, like what the learners I have observe do. 2. Think of a teacher you cannot forget for positive or negative reasons. How did she/he help or not help you with your need (physical, emotional, social, and cognitive)? How did it affect you? I can’t forget that teacher for negative reasons, because of her bad attitude that she don’t care about her students feelings. Whenever one of us can’t answer her question correctly she will suddenly put the students in shame and embarrass in front of the class. For that reasons during discussion I am afraid in committing mistakes and she might embarrass me if my answer is wrong I hate going to school just to attend her class because every time she begin throwing questions my heart beats faster because of nervous and I know I’m not the only one can’t concentrate with our lessons who feel that way also my classmates. Because of fear to that teacher I lose my interest to attend in her class. 3. Which is your favorite theory of development? How can this guide you as a future teacher? My favorite theory is the reinforcement theory because it is focused on the association of events that stimulate behavior, and it concentrates on the
consequences. It strength then my performances of a desired behavior and it motivates me to do my best in the class.

How did the classroom organization and routines affect the learners behavior? Through the classroom organization and routines the learners becomes aware if what is happening inside the classroom and also because of classroom organization and routines the learners becomes discipline. 2. What should the teacher have in mind when she/he designs the classrooms organization and routines? What theories should you have in mind? Before a teacher designs the classrooms organizations she must ask herself first if her designs will help her students learning’s. Will it be effective for teaching? A teacher must consider always her students before she designs the classroom organization and routines. 3. Which behavior strategies were effective in managing the behavior of the learners? In motivating students? Why were they effective?
Giving praises good comments and rewards to the learners whenever they have good deeds. These will help the learners to be motivated and have interest with their studies. They will be encourage to study harder t o gain these praises, good comments and rewards.Your reflection 1. Imagine yourself organizing your classroom in the future. In what grade level do you see yourself? What routines would you consider for this level? Why? I imagine myself organizing my classroom in the future in grade six level, before I start my discussion we will pray first, next is checking attendance then I will monitor if they do their assignments after that I will start my discussions and lastly I will give 5 items quiz for evaluation. 2. Make a list of the rules you are likely to implement in this level. Why would you choose these rules? The list of the rules that I would like to implement in this level are the ff: Come to school in an exact time. Always wear your proper uniform Do not make noise when class is goin on. Be in proper seats. Keep the cleanliness of the room. I choose these rules because I know that following all of these will help the learners to be discipline, and easily if the classroom is organized well. 3. Should learners be involved in making in class rules? Why?
Yes, the learners must be involved in making these class rules because, they are the main reasons why teachers make rules and it is always for the sake of them as well as to the teacher. Episode 4 Individual differences and Learners InteractionYour reflection 1. How did you feel being in what classroom?

Being in the classrooms I feel happy to see the learners unity and I feel a sense of oneness between the teacher and the learners. 2. In the future, how would you want learners in your classroom to interact? How will you make this happen? In the future I want the learners in my classroom to interact in me with respect. I will make this happen by showing interaction with respect to them too. 3. How will you encourage all learners, regardless of religious, ethnic or racial background, to interact and participate? By explaining the importance of these to them.Your analysis
1. Identify the persons who play key roles in he relationships in the classrooms. What roles do they play? Is there somebody who appears to be the leader? A mascot/joker, an attention seeker, a little teacher, a double/pessimist? The person who plays key roles in the relationships and interactions in the classrooms are the teacher, students, and classmates. The teacher is the leader. If the class is over I have observed the pupils playing, some are making jokes and some of them imitate as a little teacher.2. Are students coming from the minority group accepted or rejected by the others? How is this shown? Yes, they were accepted this is shown by giving them attention and entertainment.3. How does the teacher influence the class interaction considering differences of the students? The teacher influence the class interaction considering the individual differences of the students in a sense that a teacher is the one who will manage and treat them if she treat her students equally. The students will not feel bad and they will be happy to interact in the class despite of their differences.4. What factors influence the grouping of leaner’s outside the classroom? The factors that influence the grouping of learners outside the classroom are their age, gender, or may be their ethnic background and attitude.
Episode 5 Individual Differences and Learners InteractionYour analysis 1. Did your observation match information given by the teacher? Were you able to correctly identify who among the students performed well and who did not? What helped you identify them? (Volunteering to answer, responding to teachers directions, etc.) My observation matches the information given by the teachers. I was able to correctly identify who among the students performed well and who did not, through their behavior. The students who performed well volunteer easily to teachers directions. 2. Describe the difference in ability levels of the students in the class. Is there a wide gap between the students who are performing well and those are not? There are differences in ability levels of the students in the class. Some students are performing well and some are not and there is a wide gap between them. 3. Describe the methods used by the teachers in handling the students differences in abilities/ how did the students respond to the teacher?
The teacher discusses her lessons by showing pictures to her pupils so that the pupils will understand more. The pupils respond to the teacher by recitation.Your reflection 1. Recall the time when you were in the elementary or high school. Recall the high and low achievers in your class. How did your teacher deal with differences in abilities? Was your teacher effective? As I recall time when I was in high school, I remember that I have a classmates who were high-achievers and low-achievers in our class. My teachers assign the high-achievers to be a leader and help the low- achievers to perform well. 2. With the principle of individual differences in mind, what methods and strategies will you remember in the future to ensure that will be able to meet the needs of both the high and low achievers in your class? With the principle of individual differences in mind, in the future I will use methods and strategies in teaching to ensure that I will be able to more the needs of both the high and low achievers in my class. These methods and strategies like knowing the nature of the child and understanding them will help me meet their needs.
