MY ANALYSIS Give at least three benefits of doing a survey of available materials before making your ownmaterials? Explain each. 1. Surveying available materials lead us into having an idea on how those materials are significant to the lesson that we are going to deliver. It gave us knowledge on how those materials are related and useful in our topic. Upon seeing those instructional aids, it give us suggestion on how are we going to deliver the lesson more beneficial and effectively. 2. To be able to have an effective presentation of lesson, the teachers should be knowledgeable to the materials itself. Upon observing and surveying, we become aware and able to use the materials. With the knowledge and skill, the way on how we will deliver the topic will be more accurate and precise. The understanding of the procedures and guidelines in using the material will make the educative process be accessible. The awareness on the usage of materials will lead the teacher into more effective facilitator of learning. 3. Aside from that, it gave us thought on what type of materials will motivate the students’ interest. It makes us conscious on what type of instructional materials will be applicable in specific grade level of students. It gave us knowledge on what kind of materials will be effective and necessary to the topic, as well as the learners. Good characteristics of the teaching aid also perceived by us and in that way, more precise and correct usage of the instructional materials will be applied.
MY REFLECTIONS1. Which of the materials did you like making the most? Why? The teaching material which I think would be the most conducive to use is the LCD projector within the prepared power point presentation. Having it in the school is being useful aid in teaching- learning process. It is chosen by me because it is less expensive yet a wonderful presentation could also be created.2. What difficulties, if any, did you encounter in making the materials? How did you overcome them? In deciding the materials to be used, we prepared to have a drill and practice software which is relevant to our topic. We foresee that it will greatly help to provide our students with quality learning. Yet, it is not that easy to download the software itself. On the other hand, preparing the slide presentation, we encountered very minimal hardship due to having our own background and prior knowledge in creating it. In accomplishing our visual aid, we found difficulty in deciding the appropriateness of the design due to having our own ideas and decision. Still, with the cooperation and unity of the group, everything was being settled.3. What tips can you give teachers regarding preparation of teaching materials? In preparing the material needed, in teaching, teachers should consider the topic itself, the learners and of course the availability of learning materials. It will be easy to present a lesson if materials are already provided at the school and accessible. If it is visual aids, the font color and sizes should be appropriate to the visual ability of the students. On the other hand, providing PowerPoint presentation will also be accurate because it somehow arouses students’ interest and attention. However, the graphics and theme of the slide presentation should also be applicable to the age of the students. The instructional skill possess by the teachers, however will definitely sum up the appropriateness of the instructional materials to be presented at the class. In preparing the material, it is not a requisite to be too much expensive. The teacher should also acquire the attitude of being resourceful. It will be possible if the teacher have their own creativity on how to make their materials in a way that still, it cope the students’ attention and make them participate in teaching-learning process. What important is, the teaching aid to be provided will not just serve as decoration nor profs of the teacher, instead, it will help students develop their learning in a maximum possible way.
