the class.

Was your organisation of


materials and resources
efficient and effective?

My resources that I required for my small group lesson and


my first full class lesson were photocopied and on hand for
the lessons well before I was to teach them. I had everything I
needed for the lessons and they were effective in engaging

Were you aware of


classroom procedures
and school disciplinary
policy? How much did
you know about your
students?

I was aware of classroom procedures as I sat in on the class


for a week before teaching, so I became quite familiar with
how the classroom was run and what was expected of the
students. I enquired about the school disciplinary policies
prior to teaching the class and had a sound knowledge of the
processes in place for managing behaviour. I asked my
mentor teacher about the students and got to know some of
them from my time sitting in the classroom. I was aware of
the two students on the autism spectrum and their needs,
who most readily answers in class and the students that are
more reserved. I knew that while there was diversity of race
within the classroom the students were all raised in Australia
so had similar cultural backgrounds. Being that it was a
GATE class I knew that the students had all past certain tests
to gain entry into the gifted and talented program.

Maintaining a Positive Attitude in the Classroom

How did you demonstrate


to the students that you
valued them, and enjoyed
the teaching/learning
process?
e.g. Tone of voice, facial
expression, sense of
humour, introduction to
students and topic.

Which aspects of your


teaching style do you feel
helped you maintain class
attention?

I used eye contact to show that I was paying close attention


to any student talking, tone of voice to convey enthusiasm
when they understood the teaching point, as well as using
tone of voice to encourage engagement in the lesson. My
sense of humour helped to relate topics to the class such as
my anecdotes on writing and when critiquing the students
own short stories, to keep them on point and to show them
where they could take the story if they wanted to. I presented
a friendly and caring manner when taking charge of the class
and students responded with robust discussion of the topics
presented.

I think working in groups with the activities I provided helped


to engage the students more than if they were to work
individually. The group work allowed them to discuss the
questions they were presented with or the creative writing
exercise and brought forth more ideas than solo work would

have produced. By moving around the class and talking to
class or group discussion, each group during this time I was also able to keep them on

having trouble with the activity.

Did the students know


what was expected of
them?

I tried to give clear and concise instructions though in my


second lesson I was told by my mentor that I needed to slow
down. Writing these instructions on the board would have
been advisable as students seemed unclear of the
parameters I was setting for an activity and asked for
clarification.

Were you able to redirect


energies of attention
seeking students? Did
the students have enough
to do?

There were not really any attention seeking students, one


student likes to answer all the questions and so I had to
make sure to call on other students acknowledging that the
first student had the answer but it was someone elses turn
now. The students had plenty to keep them occupied in my
lessons.

Dealing with Minor Misbehaviour

student was doing?

Did you take any action


when you observed poor
behaviour? Why? Why
not?

Did you use non-verbal


cues? e.g. Contact,
pause, gesture,
movement toward
student/s concerned.

The most I had to do was tell a few people to be quiet here


and there. In my second lesson I had some girls up the front
getting noisy and I reminded them that it was work time and I
shouldn't be hearing that much talk. When other students
were presenting their stories I would occasionally have to
remind parts of the class that we are listening now.

I used pause when waiting for the class to quiet themselves


as my mentor teacher has set up this behaviour management
already. I used gesture and glance when asking lone
students to be quiet when others were talking.
