Classroom Observations Under our teacher evaluation system, teachers have a choice between four options for classroom observation: A minimum of one formal classroom observation and three informal observations is required.
I observed two classes of a mid-beginner level course at UFC. These classes took place on May 29 and June The teacher has a Master degree in Linguistics and is currently a PhD student in the same field.
She has been teaching at UFC for more than 20 years and has experience in teaching different courses at the under graduation program. Sometimes, I am going to base some observations on some concepts and ideas studied during the course Methods.
At the end, I am going to present my own considerations about the whole teaching-learning process that I could observe during these two classes. When I entered the room, the teacher told that she was revising the last content seen in the previous class, which was the difference between Present Perfect and Present Perfect Continuous.
The teacher revised the subject mentioned above following examples in a grammar that the students apparently do not have the copy, but it is said that that was the material of the previous class.
According to her, this part of the class was to link the previous class to the present one, because there were many doubts about Present Perfect tense.
She wrote sentences in both Present Perfect and Past Simple to explain the difference. During this part of the class, students were in silence and apparently paying attention to what the teacher was explaining. As I could observe, this part of the class was completely teacher-centered, although it served as a warm-up.
It took fifteen minutes of basic grammar explanation.
Then, the teacher asked the students what the difference between Present Perfect and Present Perfect Continuous was. Students continued in silence and did not make effort to answer, but looked at each other, without answer.
Then, the teacher explained it creating a sentence about a student of the class to give an example. She kept presenting sentences on the board to exemplify the difference between the two tenses.
She used funny situations from the class to contextualize the sentences. Meanwhile, students were in silence or laughed once in a while, but did not ask anything. The teacher asked a student for an example of Present Perfect Continuous and the student answered correctly and the teacher made some comments.
This part of the class longed around twenty-five minutes, and ended by 2: After the review and supposed warm-up, that longed 40 minutesthe teacher started a listening activity from the book, which is World English I. Before starting the activity, the teacher asked the students about what an ad was.
She mentioned that in English it is common to make abbreviations to shorten large words or with difficult pronunciation.Writing an observation report for a classroom involves taking accurate notes during the classroom visitation, organizing the report around the most relevant issues, and writing the report .
