Teacher’s Reflections (material, method, and objectives): Next time I should use larger pictures, I should also be very careful with the time distribution of the activities.
Reflection: Ineffective Reading Comprehension Lesson Plan The skill developed for reading comprehension was sequence of events. Oneof the reasons why this plan was ineffective was because the pictures used todescribe the story organization where too small. I learned that if I want thewhole classroom to participate I have to use large pictures that students canappreciate from each corner. Another factor that contributes for this plan to beineffective was the fact that I only used three sequences. I consider that inorder to challenge the students I should always use more than three sequences ofevents. Also the skills given on the handout for the closing activities did not followthe same structure from the developmental activities. For the developmentalactivity the students place the sequence of events in terms of beginning, middleand end. On the handout they had to place the sequence in terms of 1, 2 , 3 andthis simple difference provoked misunderstanding among the students. I learnedthat when teaching lower levels I should always be very structured for the benefitof my students.
