  6. 6. Video viewing
  7. 7. SharingCompare your notes and comments with a partner.Your goal is to get as much information as possibleabout the lesson you observed.
  8. 8. Analyzing the lesson/Creating an action Plan Questions Answers Analysis Notes What might students behavior indicate? What seemed to help/hinder students learning? Why? How? Step1 How did the teacher affect the students learning? Based on what you know about teaching/learning a language, what can you say about what helps learning? Action Plan/ If you were the teacher… What might you do differently the next time? What guidelines can you set for yourself Step 2 when teaching? What questions do you have that you would like to work on? What would you like to do in your lesson to address these issues?

To sum up Stage Information Experience (Classroom Events) Description What teacher and Students do and say Don’t mix up the events with your own reactions Analysis What helped/hinder learning What I know about teaching and learning What theory says about teaching and learning Action Plan What to do to overcome the problems/puzzles
  11. 11. Pointers The experiential learing cycle can be used for a wide range of learning experiences. It is not only for classroom observation. The cycle isn’t necessarily linear. There are times in which we might need to go back and review the information we collected.
  12. 12. My own action plan Using what you’ve learned through this workshop, what are two actions you can take to reflect on your teaching?
  13. 13. To wrap up… In what ways were your expectations fulfilled? What’s something you would google or research after this presentation?
