pupils in the class are 30. 16 of them are
male and 14 of them are female. Besides
that, the classroom composed of pupils of
different races; 21 Malays, 6 Chinese and 5

abilities pupils.
One pupils has been identified having
learning disabilities whereas others are the
average learners.
As for the socio-economic background, of
most of the pupils are from a low and
moderate socio-economic background.
Generally, all the pupils are well behaved;
problems tend to arise, however, when
activities are text-book and paper-and-
pencil oriented.

ASSURE MODEL
Specific Competencies Level
Some of the pupils previous
knowledge that have been identified:
i) They are aware of the occupation
around them.
ii) They have real life experiences
interacting with people in those
occupations.



In terms of the specific competencies level,
most of the pupils are aware of the
occupations around them but they have not
yet mastered the spelling of words related
to occupation. Therefore, the pupils wanted
to know about the occupations and to learn
to spell the words correctly. Thus, what the
students will learn after the teaching and
learning are, the pupils are able to read,
spell and articulate the correct and accurate
pronunciation.
Learning styles
Various kinds of learning styles have
been identified based on perceptual
preferences and strengths (S.E.
Smaldino,2005), such as visual-
spatial, linguistic and
interpersonal.

Tactile : 9%
Auditory : 38%
Visual : 31%
Kinesthetic : 22%

The learning styles of pupils vary according
to individuals. The pupils do not like the
monotony of English textbook as in-
classroom-tasks. These tasks are usually
centered on paper-and-pencil activities.
Persistent use of the textbook often results
in the pupils become bored and restless.
The pupils seem to learn best from activities
that incorporate the use of manipulatives.
Using computer and the internet provides
intrinsic motivation. According to Keller
(1987), pupils who are intrinsically
motivated will work harder and learn more
because of their personal interest in the
material.
ASSURE MODEL
In addition to that, the pupils like group-
oriented learning activities like role play. As
for the testing, many of the pupils tend to
experience difficulty and anxiety during
written examinations. As a result, the pupils
prefer to be evaluated using methods that
incorporated fun but yet challenging
activities.

able to spell 3 out of 5
spellings correctly.

The next step is to define the objective of
the instruction. The objectives help the
teacher to make appropriate selection of
methods and media to be used during the
teaching and learning process. It also
provides help in guiding the teacher as it lay
out the sequence of learning clearly.
The objectives which are specified in the
daily lesson plan (DLP) are based on a
group of 32 pupils of the target. After the
learning process, at least 85 % of the pupils
are expected to be able to read, spell,
arrange and pronounce the focus words

knowledge into the task that they are doing.
Besides that, the electronic presentation
becomes a good media selection as
students are more interested to look at
colorful pictures and interesting audio.

Materials
The use of media and materials by
the pupils and teacher.
The media and materials should
be implemented right according to
the lessons objectives.
There are certain steps to be
checked on in order to fully utilize
the media and materials.

a) Preview material
b) Prepare material
c) Prepare environment
d) Prepare the students
e) Provide learning experience

The steps that are checked on in order
to utilize the media and materials in this
class are:
a) Preview material
The media and materials are checked to
confirm there is no errors or
misconception in the lesson. Teacher
previews the occupation paper doll, the

Participation
a) Learners need to practice what
they have learned.
b) All activities should provide
opportunities to manipulate the
information and allow time for
practice during the demonstration
of the skill.







ASSURE MODEL
Set Induction :

used to help the pupils to recall their
prior knowledge related to the
occupations.








Teacher shows a big occupation paper doll
(head part) to pupils and paste it on the
board. The teacher pastes different types of
clothing on the paper doll (doctor coat,
firefighter clothing, policeman uniform,
teacher clothing and chef clothing). Each
time the clothing is being pasted on, the
teacher asks the pupils the name of the
occupation and some other questions that
are relevant. This will allow the pupils to be

presentation to introduce pupils with
different types of occupations and
their respective workplaces.
Teacher teaches the learners how to
spell the focus words (policeman,

pupils.
Teacher collects the worksheet after
the pupils have completed their work.

provides the drilling activity of teaching
spelling to the pupils. This crossword
puzzle provide an interesting way of
spelling exercise as it provide challenges to
the pupils at this age. It also teaches the
pupils to become independent as they will
attempt this worksheet on their own with the
guidance of the teacher.

Production
Teacher assigns the pupils to work in
group of 4.
Teacher distributes a worksheet and
an envelope which contain wordings
to each group.
In group, teacher asks the pupils to
arrange the words into correct
spelling based on the picture in the
worksheet. The pupils need to
complete the task within the given
time.

Pupils are a given a chance to work in
groups to discuss the worksheets given by
teacher. This activity enables the pupils to
move around a bit, thus avoiding the lesson
to be boring.
