Shelley has a very kind, patience demeanor in the classroom she answers student questions in a
respectful way. She warmly welcomes students to the classroom and creates a favorable learning
environment. The agenda is written on the board for students to refer to and also goes over it so they
know what to expect. Classroom management skills can be challenging to master. Shelley
demonstrated a number of effective strategies and is continuing to work to improve in this area. She
is advised to continue providing clear instructions for each activity prior to its commencement.

The lesson plans were well organized. Shelley wrote the agenda on the board at the beginning of each
lesson to guide the class. The range of materials and activities Shelley incorporated into her lessons
were also of interest to the students and kept them engaged throughout the class.

Shelley creates interesting, original instructional materials to address the requirements of the
curriculum and the language learning needs of the students. She is very creative. At times, Shelley’s
aural instructions for students are not always clear; however, she has shown improvement and growth
in this area over her field placement experience. When introducing new content, it is important that
students are familiar with new vocabulary and concepts before proceeding to an interactive activity.
Another opportunity for growth is to limit the use of idiomatic language and cultural references that
students are not always familiar with, and again, this comes with experience in the classroom and
knowing learners over time.

5. Instruction facilitates ample opportunities for learner participation and for feedback and correction.

Shelley is very apt with her questioning techniques to elicit higher order thinking skills. She provides
opportunities for student to think carefully about questions before asking for a response. During the
lessons, she monitored students as they worked in groups and responded to student questions
effectively. A balance of teacher- and student-led discussion and activity is important and challenging
to achieve, and Shelley has shown growth in this area. Providing opportunities for students to take
ownership in their learning and contributions to the class, for example, by asking them to write
answers on the board or paraphrasing discussions would be a beneficial approach.
6. Materials and instructional techniques selected reflect real-world communication scenarios and the
learners’ interests and goals.

Shelley has excellent learning activity ideas that are creative and engaging for students. However, at
times, communicating the expectations for students and capturing their attention once they began an
activity was a challenge Shelley is advised to continue working on. In addition, it is important for the
learning expectations associated with each activity to be communicated clearly.

8. The instructor made an intentional effort to achieve SMART goals. Progress observed.
No attempt
