A Classroom Experience

These straightforward questions are designed to prompt you to think about a specific aspect of your practice, and how to improve it.
Record a classroom experience, under these 4 headings:
  • What I did: e.g. I explained how children should set out their work.
  • Why I did it: e.g. I wanted to improve the appearance of their written work.
  • What was good about it: e.g. I spoke slowly and carefully and answered their queries using child-friendly language. My pedagogical knowledge was good.
  • What could have been improved: e.g. I need to ensure that every child is paying attention before I speak.
