Hex fs 2 episode 4

  1. 1. OBSERVATION SHEET Name of the Resource Teachers observed: Mrs. Candelaria Torrevillas Mrs. Liezel Caermare Mrs. Ma. Cristina Galgo School Address: GCCNHS Gingoog City, Misamis Oriental Date: Aug. 3, 2016 Grade/Year Level: Grade 9 and 7 Subject Area: English, Science and Math Guiding Principles in the Selection and Use of Strategies Teaching Behavior/s of the Resource Teacher that Applies the Principles 1. Learning is an active process. 1. On my observation the teacher prepared various activities for the students so that they are always involved in the learning process. During the lesson proper students engage in activities, such as reading, writing, discussion, problem solving, and collaborative activities which I think helped a lot on the students’ analysis, synthesis, and evaluation of the class content. 2. The more senses are involve, the more and the better the learning. 2. During the whole period I think only three senses were emphasized by the teacher which is sense of sight, when she provided the students novelty of instructional materials, sense of hearing, when the discussion was going on student interactions and student-teacher conversation occurred, sense of touch, when the activity that the teacher provided involves holding to any object which is considered as matter. The teacher’s involvement of the senses during the learning experience made me realize that retaining information that you had actually experienced lasts longer than those you do not actually sense or experience.
  2. 2. 3. A non – threatening environment enhances learning. 3. As what I had observed, from the beginning up to the end of the class the teacher really provided a conducive and a non-threatening learning environment. She was not scary in the classroom rather she is friendly towards her students, even though the teacher is friendly, discipline was also implemented in the class, bullying was apprehended to save students from humiliation, it is due to the fact that before the class had started classroom rules were introduced and I guess it was successful because the whole period was harmonious and peaceful which resulted to better understanding and learning. 4. Emotion has the power to increase retention and learning. 4. During my class observation, emotion really has the power to increase retention. The teacher was jolly enough to motivate and stimulate class attention, the teacher is also humorous which made the whole class laugh, she gives praises to the answers of the students which are right and responded to the wrong answers appropriately so that the student’s feelings is not hurt and will not be afraid to try again. During the evaluation, the students got high scores ranging from 17 – 20 out of the 20 items quiz, this really suggests that the teachers’ humor, attitude, and etc. made the students focus on the subject matter and retain the information due to the fun learning experience then as a result they got high scores in the evaluation.
  3. 3. 5. Good teaching goes beyond recall of information. 5. As what I had witnessed the teacher, asked a student to answer the question and to defend his answer. So, by doing this the Higher Order of Thinking Skills or HOTS is being developed, there is still recall but it goes beyond by letting the students make use of the principles, and other relevant information to be connected. It is also a good evaluation to see if students really understand the subject being discussed. 6. Learning is meaningful when it is connected to the students’ everyday life. 6. During the lesson proper the teacher discussed about matter, elements and compounds then during the discussion she had connected the topic to real life situations , just like the condiments that they use in their households are examples of elements and compounds, the chair that they sit on is an example of matter. She also integrated socio political issues regarding the Scarborough shoal; the teacher said that China is claiming that area because it is rich in natural resources which include rare compounds and elements. 7. An integrated teaching approach is far more effective than teaching isolated bits of information. 7. As what I had observed the teacher promotes the importance of individual differences , such as their learning styles and multiple intelligences because she had prepared and employed variety of activities that would cater the individual difference of the learners and by doing that I can really say that the approach that she had used is the integrated approach.
  4. 4. MY ANALYSIS 1. Are these principles in accordance with brain – based teaching and learning? Yes, these principles are in accordance with brain-based teaching and learning. I can say that because Brain-based teaching and learning refers to teaching methods, lesson designs, and school programs that are based on the latest scientific research about how the brain learns, including such factors as cognitive development—how students learn differently as they age, grow, and mature socially, emotionally, and cognitively. The following principles stated above involves mental processes, metacognition as well as how the brain performs in association with the current emotion that the learners have and that learning is an active process which really proves that it is in accordance with the brain- based teaching and learning. My Reflections What is the best method of teaching? Is there such thing? For me, there is no such thing as the best teaching method, but there is only an appropriate teaching method. It is due to the fact that every learner is unique that is why teachers should know their students well, because one of the main factors to consider in choosing a teaching method is the nature of your learners so, versatility and flexibility is what a teacher must possess in order to cater the students various needs considering also their different learning styles, and multiple intelligences.
