A. Find out how the teacher planned and prepared for the section you observed.
Interview your teacher. Use the following questions to help you

How do you plan? Do you plan weekly, daily; as part of a team or individually?
- We plan as a team every week, after that I plan with my partner.

Do you ever implement any activities that you hadnt planned to do?
- Yes, although planning is essential but I did implement a couple of activities without
planning, that was when I feel that the students got bored and needed to move their
bodies, so I would take them outside.
What is important to consider when planning a lesson?
- It is important to place the outcome first, they think about the different levels of the
students.
Do you plan to do the same thing with all the children in the classroom? (Why/Why not?
- We have different levels in the classroom, some students are high achieves, some are in the
middle and there are the students who need more support. So, when I come up with
activities, I think of how to adjust them, that way the students will achieve but in their
level.
