TEACHERS EVALUATION OF LESSON:


This lesson could have been much better. The aims were vague, as well as the teaching point.
The lesson plan was not direct or focused on what I needed to teach, and I also did not have
student activities that engaged students attention and actions. Student activities were very
passive, rather than active. They did not engage in the discussion that I had hoped they would
engage in and I realised that its because I also needed to plan the questions, that and not just
randomly question them. I needed to actually have timed parts of the lesson, so that it would be
less confusing. I didnt demonstrate what aspects of Fitzgeralds life I needed to connect to the
questions and to the novel. This exercise was quite vague and the students didnt appreciate its
value. I need to apply what I am learning in class to planning lessons better.
