RATIONAL (21/08)
This a 50 minutes English class for beginners at UAA in which the general objective is that
Ss demonstrate their comprehension about demonstrative pronouns, indefinite articles, and
the sounds of the alphabet talking about personal object and using their speaking and
listening skills. We think that they already know the verb to be so there is not necessary to
explain the topic and include some exercises that involves the use of verb to be. We also
think that they may have problems at the moment of speak and that they are not going to
understand what we say so we are going to give them confidence to speak developing a
good rapport with them and we are going to try to speak slow and make body language and
gesture and if they do not understand we may use Spanish. As a warm up we are going to
put a video on the screen so they can realize what the topic of the day will be about this
activity will last 5 minutes and we are going to use the screen and laptop. Then we are
going to explain the use of demonstrative pronouns and then give them some examples
using realia this is going to last 10 minutes we are going to use realia and board. Students

acquire vocabulary most effectively not through passive experiences, but through lots of
opportunities to become actively involved in their learning. Fisher, D., & Frey, N. (2015).
We consider that realia is a very effective way of teaching and involving the Ss in their own
learning because it is easier for them to remember the vocabulary because they can touch
the object. Then we are going to have an activity in which Ss will practice demonstratives
adjectives by making a drawing and then making a sentence using a demonstratives
pronoun. For this activity they have to think about and object in their room make the
drawing and then share it. Classrooms that effectively promote vocabulary learning start
with a positive climate in which students are actively involved in word learning and are
encouraged to make personal connections with new vocabulary they encounter. Fisher, D.,
& Frey, N. (2015). It is important that they make personal connection with the new
vocabulary so they can remember all the vocabulary. This is going to last 10 minutes and
we are using the board, then they are going to practice the indefinite articles making some
sentences about that picture. Then we are going to show the alphabet on the screen and
make them to repeat, this is going to be a brief activity because we consider that even
though they are first level they already know the alphabet. If the student knows the letter,
there is no need to teach it. Neal, J., & Ehlert, D. (2007). So this activity is going to be a
review. Then we are going to spell some words and they will have to write them down so
we can know if they get the sounds. To conclude they are going to share their words and we
are going to solve doubts.

Reflection (27/08)
This time I felt a little bit less nervous than the last class, but still
nervous. I got frustrated because one of my students guess the topic
and I ask her again what was the topic, so the students that were late

know and she did not say it. Then I started to get more and more
nervous. At the end of the presentations I made I mistake and I realize
during the class, I ask one of my classmates and she said it was right
so I trust her.

After feedback
My classmates said that my activity was good and the power
point presentation too. I will continue trying to be enthusiastic
and to monitor. For the next class I am going to focus in error
correction, because when I corrected them I sounded rude.
Also I think I should put more attention of what they say and
not expect too much from them.

OBSERVER: Ana Gabriela


Valles Rodrguez.

The presentation you used was excellent,


You had a really god attitude, you were enthusiastic.
Good use of voice.
Very good to prize students with phrases like very
good when participating.
Good movements and use of language.
Good to ask students guess the topic.
Excellent use of the game Simon says! I liked

Aspects to improve:

Final comments
Use of language

Be careful with the spelling of some words in your


presentations. E.g. nationalities start with upper case.
When speaking to students try to be looking at them
and not at the screen.
Be careful when correcting students. Try not to say
NO. It would be better you make students to reflect
their answers with phrases like you sure? etc.
Ask students to write the vocabulary first, if they are
going to use it later.
GOOD

Reflection as observer
From my observation in this class I can say that I liked the class, but I think it went out of
control at the end. However the participation of my classmate was good. I like the use of
Simon says to introduced vocabulary, especially it was very good to use if for verbs. I
noticed that sometimes we expect too much from students regarding to their attitude.
However, if this does not happen, there is no problem. Also, we need to be careful when
correcting students because sometimes we do not even notice how we do it. Finally, we
need double check our material before present it just to be sure there is no mistakes or
wrong information.

Rationale
For the final activity we are going to make a game in which they are going to practice the
contractions and review some occupations. For this game we are going to divide the group
into two teams. Then we are going to ask them to sit in a chair with their back to the screen
and we are going to put some picture on the screen, they are going to ask questions such as
is she a singer or is he a doctor? The rest of the team is going to answer the questions using
yes/no questions so the person sit can guess who the character is. They are going to have
the structure on a wall chart so they can use it. For the closing we are going to give them a
candy. The traditional approach of teaching, with instructors standing at a podium in front
of the class before the students, imparting the wisdom of the collective years of their
education and experience, may not be the best method for all students to learn and retain
material. Weigel, F. K., & Bonica, M. (2014). We think that we should let our students
practice the language and not just give them all the grammatical rules, and a good way to
do it is with games, so that is why we decided to close the class doing this game so they can
put in practice what they learnt in the class.
Also to praise students is a good strategy for them to participate and use the language. For
example, according to B.F. Skinner (1920), there are three types of responses:
reinforcement, punishment, and neutral. In this case, we are focused on reinforcement that
is to prize students and give them something pleasant for a behavior to increase. We will
base on his theory of operant conditioning. So in this class, it is expected that when students
feel they are going to have a reward they will make a bigger effort when participating.
According to Banduras social learning theory (1977) humans can learn through imitation,
modeling, and observation. People learn from the observation of others outcomes.
According to him, there are necessary conditions for effective modeling: attention,
retention, reproduction, and motivation. In this class, students will have to pay attention to a
given pattern (contractions of verb to be in negative and positive form) ,and as the

formulation of questions is she..? and short answers: Yes, shes. This will come from a
teachers input, and students output.

Good/ Clear/ Understandable

Appropriate for the students to play


the game.

The presentation you had was good


because the images were clear and
the students could see them well.

Try to speak a little louder.

Good to ask them what guess


means but they didnt know and you
didnt tell them. For the next time
explain them if they dont know.

It was good idea to have the


instructions of the game written so
that you dont forget, but the slide
had too much information so it could
seem a little overwhelming for the
students.

You were monitoring during the


performance of Gaby, I think you
should have let her do it herself
unless she asked you for help
because you were interrupting her
class for a while when she was trying
to check the answers of the exercise.

Good to do echo correction when the


students said the structure wrongly or
when they mispronounced a word.

Reflection (02/09)
This time I felt too nervous. This is something I would like to practice
during the whole semester because I think that this situation affects my
performance. I got frustrated because of the time and at the end I did
my whole activity. Also I reached my goal they practice the language I
thought that they would not be able to understand my instructions
because they were too long. At the end everything went good

After feedback
For the next time I will try to make my instructions briefer and I
will not interrupt my classmates when giving the class and I
think that it was good to correct my Ss this is an aspect in
which I improve.

Reflection SEPT. 7 / MONDAY

In this class I felt pretty good, because I was confident with a


lil bit of nervousness but I think this is normal and we can take
advantage of this nervousness to give a good class.
Eventought I improvise the class I think I reached my
objective, I want to work more in my body language, because
my students sometimes do not understand what I say so I
have to say it with my body. I am not really patient when they
make a mistake or do not understand but I think that I am
improving in this aspect. Finally I would like to work more in
the way I articulate my mouth when I speak because
sometimes I think that my students do not understand not
because I do not pronounce the world correctly or because

they do not know, but because I do not open my mouth


correctly at the moment of speaking.
After receiving feedback
In this class I improvised and I felt very good with my
performance there are some aspects that I want to improve,
but I think that the volume of my voice are not one of those.
In my feedback my classmate said that I should improve it,
but the thing is that we have six students so it is not
necessary to speak very loud.

Most of the time you were eliciting the

but you did it mostly in Spanish. Do it

Try to be clearer for the next time, and


speak louder because that also
contributes to misunderstandings.

You looked very nervous and stressed,

Rationale (14/09)

We decided to make the books activity with a ppp, because it was a bit too long
and confusing even for us. Images help us remember the meaning of words;
associate them appropriately; and remember what we have read, seen, and heard.
They are going to associate the information with the images that we are going to
use. Given the role played by emotions in daily interactions and communication,

one can expect that individuals recruit emotional cues in learning situations, in
particular when they have to learn new words. We also want to create emotion
when they see the images for example when they see the word mother and they
see the image of a kind woman they probably are going to relate that image with
her mom so it is going to be easier for them to learn the vocabulary, because it
actually has importance in their lives.

It was appropriate because it allowed

also the tv, which you used.

Good to write the sentences you

Good use of voice, it was appropriate


for the amount of students.

Good to give short instructions, but if


you see they understood when you
gave them in English, try not to say
them in Spanish (students get lazy to
think).

When ss were working you were


walking in front of them, but you were
not giving assessment, maybe you
can go nearer them and see if they
have a question.

Good use of both boards, you wrote


the positive aspects on one board and
the negative aspects on the other
board.

REFLECTION SEPT. 14 / MONDAY


In this class we planned activities for 5 or more students but we only had
round three, but at the end everything work because I played with them
so that we could make the activities. The students were having a lot of fun
because they were laughing and when we finish the activity they wanted
to continue. We decided to make one of the readings in a brief way and
with images, because we think that this way is easier for them to catch all
the information and also because we can hold their attention with this kind
of presentations. I think that we did a good work as a team, our students
get all the information because they were participating. The environment
of the class was pretty good, because my classmate and I were joking
and the students were feeling comfortable to participate.

After feedback
Our idea to make the reading a ppp was pretty good, because
they got the information faster I am going to take into
consideration for my next classes to make this kind of activities
with readings that are too long. My classmate said that I was
more confident and I really like that she thinks that because I
am working on it.

Rationale 18.09
This time we decided to ask them to perform a real life situation using some of the
useful phrases they are going to learn in this way they will reinforce this new
vocabulary, because they are going to be using it in a real life situation. To be
effective, educators utilizing role-play must help learners set realistic goals and
know when and how to provide feedback to the learners in a way that allows a
deepening of skills and a promotion of self-awareness. The challenge is to do
this in a manner that does not cause too much anxiety for the learner. We are
going to try to make them practice creating an environment in which no one
judge mistakes but give positive feedback for their improvement. In a role-play,
students are provided with facts about a situation into which they are then
inserted for a brief, simulated interaction. The scenario may be fictional or
based on an actual incident. We are going to ask them to use this useful
phrases in a real life situation this activity is going to help, because they are
going to practice in a real situation so that they can use this phrases in the
future properly knowing how when and where to use it.

Reflection

SEPT. 18 / FRIDAY

In this class I felt good with my performance I think everything


went good, but talking about my emotions I was a little bit
sick so I think this affect could affect my class I little bit
because I was not very enthusiastic with my students. In this
activity I had to encourage my students to participate I guess I
did not do it not only because I was sick, I did not do it
because I am not a very outgoing person and when in an
activity we need to use our body I do not feel very
comfortable, so in this case I did not encouraged Alan to
participate, because I know how it feels to be force to do
something that you do not like. I thought that they were not
going to get my instructions but they did and I did not have to

repeat them so hopefully this means that I am improving in


this aspect my instructions were brief and clear.
After Feedback
I used Spanish in this class, because that was something that
must be in Spanish it was important information and also my
voice was not very loud cause we have six students maybe in
a bigger group I should speak louder but not in this class. My
classmate said that I need to use more English and to speak
louder and I completely disagree with her feedback.

Rationale
The underlying concepts of cognitivism involve how we think and gain knowledge.
Cognitivism involves examining learning, memory, problem solving skills, and
intelligence. Cognitive theorists may want to understand how problem solving changes
throughout childhood, how cultural differences affect the way we view our own academic
achievements, language development, and much more. (Feldman, Cognitivism).
In the warm up and the activities we planned, students were asked to practice the
new grammar and vocabulary by using at some points their previous knowledge of habits.
Therefore, they were meant to use in different ways the information, looking for them to
have a wider view of how they can use the new knowledge. According to Cognitivism, this
created a motivational climate within the classroom. There were two factors that were
critical to motivate students, value and effort. Students must understand that the work they
were performing is worthwhile. Value measured the importance of a student's work to
him/herself and others. Effort was the amount of time and energy students put into their
work.
This class is about Simple Present, focusing on the use of do and does for negative
statements. As learning strategy prior knowledge would be a key for students in this new
structure, due to the rules of Simple Present have been already explained (the use of s in
third person). Therefore this lesson plan is focused on integrate that background knowledge
with the new rules of the Simple Present.
We use the deductive approach in order to explicitly give students the new
information, due to it is one of the most important topics of the level and rules must be
learned correctly, for us it was important to avoid ambiguity.

Reflection (23/09)
This class I felt a Little bit nervous because I was unsure about the explanation of
the topic. I think it was good for me to give this part of the class because I think I
need to practice more in giving explanations. I tried to give several examples but I
think they did not get the topic very well because I did not put the grammatical
structure on the board, so for the next time I am going to give them the structure.
Also I felt that I was not really paying attention to my students they were asking me
some doubts but I was not able to solve them cause I did not even understand
what they were trying to say. This class I liked that I improve the aspect of the use
of English, because I used English most of the time.

After feedback
I still have some pronunciation mistakes I should practice more, my attitude was
good I try to make the topic clear and it was good to start with examples and then
give the explanation and then again continue with some examples.
