TEACHERS EVALUATION OF LESSON:

This lesson could have been much better. The aims were vague, as well as the teaching point. I
should have focused on Soliloquy, rather than on the broad topic of staging and set. I also need to
look at Dramatic Unities and engage the students interest. Many of them were quite lethargic
and did not understand how the Soliloquy worked. This was because I failed to generate interest
in the topic. I also did not focus on Audience impact and expectation, which is very important
for understanding the importance of the Soliloquy. The lesson plan was not direct or focused on
what I needed to teach, and I also did not have student activities that engaged students attention
and actions. Student activities were very passive, rather than active. They did not engage in the
discussion that I had hoped they would engage in and I realised that its because I also needed to
plan the questions, that and not just randomly question them. I needed to actually have timed
parts of the lesson, so that it would be less confusing. This exercise was quite vague and the
students didnt appreciate its value. Also, students expressed a wish to enact the scene or use film
to guide them. I need to apply what I am learning in class to planning lessons better.
