Date of Observation: August 16, 2012
School: Sagay National High School
Grade/Year Level: Third Year
As I observe the class, the topic was about idiomatic expression using participle. Through the use of visual aids, the teacher delivers her lesson effectively. The topics were written in a manila paper and there was legibility in the content because it can be quickly and clearly understood by students sitting at the back. There was experiential learning that happens inside the classroom and one of the reasons was that, students interact on the learning materials that the teacher provides. The teacher let her students read every detail in the visual aids, actually what was written on the visual aid were questions for the students to be answered.
Many of them were raising their hands to answer questions and it simply indicates the student’s attentiveness, eagerness and understanding. As I closely observed the student’s simple gestures, it was inevitable for me to conclude that they were interested on the lesson. The focus of their sight was merely on the teacher and the learning resources, and some of them were frowning maybe it’s because they were very doubtful or dissented about the answer of their classmate. Those simple gestures of students were the indication of attentiveness, eagerness and understanding.

Comments on Appropriateness of the Teaching Aids Used
The teacher knows how to efficiently utilize the materials.
There is legibility on the content because students can quickly and clearly understand what was written.
It will be only weak if the teacher do not know how to efficiently utilize the material and if the content is not clear enough to students.
Clerical errors could be also its weakness.
It assists the teacher in delivering her lesson, so it is appropriate to use this material for a large number of students inside the classroom and it is necessary for the teacher to use it because most of the students were visual students.
