SUMMARY COMMENTS by the SUPERVISING TEACHER


Rima is a professional and motivated pre-service teacher. She presented herself in a mature and responsible
manner and engaged in all aspects of school activity. Rima taught a range of middle school classes in English
from Year 7 10.

She participated in both professional learning on a faculty and whole school level( staff meetings). She also
observed lessons outside her curriculum area. Rima was very proficient and excelled in organising lessons and
plans which observed the different learning needs of her classes. Her classroom pedagogy in teaching students of
different skill levels and delivery of these lessons, was an example of high quality teaching. She was able to
evaluate her lessons in a constructive manner and applied recommendations readily and effectively. Rima was very
keen to seek advice and strategies for improvement with class room management. She ensured that all students
had access to equal opportunity learning and implemented ICT and other resources effectively.

Rima developed her classroom management skills through the implementation of school behavioural expectations,
applied differentiated strategies to suit students with challenging behaviours and applied positive recognition
strategies to acknowledge student achievement.

Rima will continue to develop and certainly be a highly organised and responsible teacher, as she continues to
experience teaching. She was professional and developed excellent questioning skills which engaged students
and challenged them. This was also reflected in her varied and thought provoking activities which allowed students
to engage in ICT,different texts and visual and non- visual learning.

She was an asset to the faculty through her collaboration in programming and shared resources, marking
examinations and assessment tasks and being exposed to the reporting and assessment process She displayed
commitment and developed her summative assessment strategies through experience in marking assessment
tasks and yearly examinations. She employed formative assessment strategies through informal observation of
student work books, discussion evaluation and feedback to students. She was enthusiastic and pro-active in her
teaching and planning and will become a valued member of any teaching faculty.

Comments
Rima is aware of the importance of informal feedback through class discussion and one to
one individualised review of student responses during the lesson. She moves confidently
around the room assisting students and has been able to do this whilst still maintaining
supervision of the other students. Rima has also assisted her classroom teachers in the
marking and recording of student formal assessment tasks. These assessment tasks have
included extended written responses and she has been able to apply the marking criteria in
a sensible and reasonably accurate manner in consultation with the classroom teachers. She
has reviewed student progress and results both in informal and formal assessment tasks to
determine best practice. Rima has developed an inherent understanding of the abilities of her
students who have diverse learning needs and his modified assessment tasks to cater for
their individual needs, reflect her ability to address student learning on all levels effectively.
Her feedback has been constructive in allowing students to understand and develop their
learning outcomes
