The Self-Evaluation of the lesson
A lesson plan is a frame work for a lesson. Its like a map in your journey. It shows you where you start, where you finish. One of the most important reasons to plan is that the teacher needs to identify his or her aims for the lesson. Teachers need to know what is they want their students to be able to do at the end of the lesson that they could not do before.
When I was making a plan for my lesson I was thinking what exactly I want to achieve in the lesson. My aim was how to involve students in the learning process to make better progress.
Every lesson usually needs to have some kind of language focus. My lesson was focused on grammar (Modal Verbs). I think that the strenthness of my lesson was in the variety of exercises and different activities but still I feel that that my weakness was that students did not talk much . Actually they have not been involved enough to produce speech. Also I could not follow strictly according to my plan.
My lesson plan was based on a course book (Cutting Edge, Cunnigham, Moor Unit 11 p.112) I think that there are advantages and disadvantages to having a course book. The advantage is that the course book provide a ready made structure for teaching material. The disadvantage is that it is very unlikely that the material was written for the teachers’ particular students. Each class is different and after the viewing of my class I tried to adopt material from the course book.
The areas which I should improve are connected with the involving students in the studying process. I think I was not very emotional and energetic during the lesson to keep my students engaged and interested.
Effective lesson planning is the basis of effective teaching. A plan is a guide for the teacher as to where to go and how to get there. My tutor gave me some valuable advices as and I try next time to improve the quality of my teaching.
