Additional Comments
Additional comments on Planning For Student Learning
Lessons are designed to introduce the student to the activity or concepts necessary to complete the
task for the class. Students participated without interruption after brief instructional period. Small
group and individual attention is given to facilitate the lesson.
Additional comments on Teaching For Student Learning
Students are challenged to observe the video and later answer questions specific to the video.
Students answered freely and enthusiastically to the questions with the level of instruction at the
student's ability to comprehend the material. Students are challenged to complete the task assigned
after instruction with the teacher continuing monitoring the activity for those needing further
assistance. Directions are excellent giving students the opportunity to comprehend the lesson before
beginning the activity. Quick review questions enabled all students to observe the key phrases and
concepts for the activity.
Additional comments on Assessing Student Learning
Monitoring of the student's activity was constant during the class giving the teacher an idea of the
student's abilities to complete the activity with eventual assessment to be administered at a later
date. Questioning and a given assignment further assessed the student's comprehension of the
lesson during class

was constantly observed and the teacher assisted those students who were in need of correction.
The class was managed well with a large number of students in a gym setting. Students
