Section A:

After the teaching slice is delivered, it is necessary to reflect on the teaching/learning process.  Your reflection (450 words minimum; 500 words maximum) may answer questions, such as: what aspects of the lesson went well?; which aspects did not go so well?; what do you think the students took away from this lesson?; are there any unanticipated consequences?; how did the students interact with each other and with you?; were the objectives of the lesson achieved?; what did the class and individual students learn today?; where should the lesson begin for the following class?; and, inter alia, are there other ways to teach or re-teach this lesson or some part of it?

Deadline: Sunday, October 28, 2018, 11:59 p.m.

Section B:

Your peer reflection (250 words minimum; 300 words maximum) may answer questions, such as: what did your peer do well?; what needs work? Offer him/her concrete suggestions.  You can do this by formulating them as questions (e.g., did you think of doing such and such a thing?  Do you think that such and such a thing might work better next time if you/the students do this, etc.)

Deadline: Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 5:59 p.m.

Your lesson followed the three phases, presentation, practice and production in a very fluent way. Your big success was the way you presented the topic and structured the activities according to the three phases of teaching the lesson. I loved each of the activities you proposed and the way you introduced the new vocabulary words. You gave students the possibility to use the vocabulary words presented more than once, thus, having them master the words during your lesson. Students had plenty of time to do the activities, and nothing was rushed, even though the time frame given was only twenty minutes, you managed enough time to achieve the three phases of the lesson. Your smile and your positive attitude was a big success too because you showed confidence while teaching.

     What would improve is the video recording. I understand that it was out of your control, but for the future make sure that the video starts when you are ready to begin your lesson, and that when you present your lesson, at least some of the students get recorded into the video, giving the viewers the opportunity to see their engagement too. Also, ask the cameraperson that the teacher should not be recorded as part of the video.

    One thing that you should avoid in the future is to show the slide displaying "the resumen del plan de lección”, this is typically used in college classes, but our teaching lesson was directed to junior high and high school students, who will not pay attention to those. Furthermore, there is no reason for them to know all of that information because it could be overwhelming, especially for junior-high students. (281 words)

I like your mini-lesson because the material was appropriate for the students. You were able to implement visual material, and communicative approach. Through the visualization of the pictures, students had a better opportunity to understand the new input in the target language. Also, you introduce the content in a very easy and calm manner that students were able to activate their background knowledge and connected with the new knowledge. The vocabulary was at the student’s level and interest because students were able to understand the new input in the target language. This is very helpful for the students because it contributes to build a comfortable climate in which students were able to participate. You were able to answer their questions. Throughout the presentation, I like the way you stressed out the sounds of the ending of the words. During (1:43) minute of the video, you were introducing the articles singular “La” and plural “Las”, in which you were using explicit input when you said “una es la uva, las uvas muchas”, as well as you used the maneuver of your hand to emphasize the meaning of the words. I like the friendly and positive interaction between you and the students. They were engaging and interested in the new material in the target language. However, I would suggest that in the future, you could add vocabulary under the pictures. This would be easy for you because you won’t have to write as well as it would help students associated the new knowledge with their background knowledge. (258 words)
