1-What was/were the learning objectives/outcomes of the lesson?(Add state objectives if

known, for example, TEKS 111.4. Grade 2.b.)
TEKS: 8.10 The student applies mathematical process standards to develop transformational
geometry concepts.
Objectives: Students use transformational geometry to represent properties of orientation and
congruence of translation in a coordinate plane.
2-How did the teacher begin and end the lesson?
The teacher began the lesson with the warm-up question. He gave the students 5 minutes to solve
it. At the end of the lesson he made closure by asking students what they learned.
3-What did the teacher use for teaching materials or instructional aids/equipment?
The teacher used coordinate plane, white board, projector, geometric shapes.
4-Which instructional methods and strategies did the teacher use?(lecture, inquiry, discovery
learning, discussions, games or simulations, demonstrations, cooperative learning, integration of
technology, socrative questioning, etc)
The teacher used lecture, discovery method and cooperative learning.
5-How did the teacher assess learning? (informal, formal, formative, summative, oral, openended, quiz, feedback etc)See Chapter 8 for more information on assessment methods
The teacher made a small quiz to asses learning.

6- What can you say about the teachers philosophy/beliefs and style?
(Traditional/progressive, behaviorist, student-centered vs. teacher centered, authoritative etc)
I had an impression that he likes teaching. He engaged students successfully and used
technology. He walked around the classroom among students and helped them when they
7-How does the teacher manage classroom? Can you identify classroom management
techniques used?
When he saw students who didnt pay attention, he asked some questions those students.
Sometimes he raised his voice to attract students attention. He often asked questions to check
the students understanding and communicate with them.
8-Observe in the classroom setting and determine types of behavior students play when offtask. What do they do when they are not paying attention? How does the teacher re-direct
them or get them back on task?
Some students talked with friends besides them, some of them drawing something, and reading.
To redirect those off-task students, and get them back on track, the teacher warned them verbally,
or moved closer those students, or stopped lecturing and waited a little bit to be engaged in
9-How does the teacher communicate with students (verbal, vocal, meta-verbal or non-verbal
communication such as facial, body language, use of space, motion and time?)
The teacher generally communicated verbally. Sometimes he used non-verbal communication
like facial and body language, or used of space by moving closer the students.
10-Who were the students in the class? What did you notice about them? (Background,
diversity, attitude, motivation, interaction, participation, etc)
There were diverse students in the classroom and they sat by grouping. A few of them were self
motivated and eager to learn. Sometimes they asked some questions when they didnt
understand. Some of them paid attention but werent willing to participate. Some of them were
hardly motivated. They lost their concentration easily they were willing to chat with their friends.

11-What did you see that is effective in engaging students? What do you see that is
ineffective in keeping students engaged?
Teaching with technology was a great effect in engaging students. Also if the students were able
to produce something or to do something by themselves they were more focused on their tasks. A
monotone voice was ineffective in keeping students engaged. Teachers should vary the
intonation of their voices.
12-What are the two instructional strategies you observed and would like to apply in your
One of the instructional strategies that I would like to apply is power point presentation. I think
the main advantage of this method is to prevent time consuming. Also students are more
interested in technology and pay more attention.
Another strategy is making groups. Group activities allow collaborative learning which can
occur peer-to-peer or in larger groups. Peer learning enables students to discuss concepts, or find
solutions to problems.

13-What are two important classroom management strategies that you observed and would
like to apply in your classroom?
The first strategy was walking around the classroom. The students were more engaged in and its
easier to manage them by this way.
The second one is that the teacher didnt lecture for the whole period. So the students werent
bored so much. Students who were actively engaged in a learning activity were generally not
disrupting the class.
