Your Analysis
What do you think prompted the teacher to choose the
materials/learning resources that he/she used?
I think, the teacher wanted her students to participate the learning
process. In my own understanding. She wanted to let her students be attentive
and be participate in their lesson and let her students utilize their analytical skills.

What difficulties, if any, did the teacher experience? How can
this be managed?
There was no difficulty that the teacher experienced as I observed.
The class was well managed and the teacher did not find it hard to convince her
students to participate in the activity.

Over-all, were the learning resources/materials used
effectively? Why? Why not?
Yes it did. All the students are participated in the activity. And then
some of them were able to guess what was asked. And lastly, their scores on
their seatwork/exercises showed a positive result.

Your Reflections
1. Put yourself on the place of the teacher. What would you do similarly
and what would you do differently if you will teach the same lesson to
the same group of students? Why?
If I will be a teacher, I used an Inductive approach. I will also do
some activities and not merely discussing. I will create a game through the
use of projector. If the resources are not available, I will use boards or
cardboards and utilize their physical activity by dividing them into groups to
be followed by a short discussion.
