Section A: Basic descriptive information <include details about teacher, grade level, details about
students>
This is 9th grade. One of my colleagues at university is going to teach their lesson and they are
bit over-excited. I feel anxious to see how my colleague will cope with the class of teenage students
and whether she will have problems with the discipline. I expect something interesting to happen, and
I am sure my colleague has prepared and organized the lesson perfectly.

Our colleague asks the students to read their
homework aloud. They raise their hands and she

Section C: Overall ratings of the lesson <include summaries of the objectives and contents of the
lesson>
The lesson starts with reading the students homework, actually to the end of the class they do
the exercises from the homework. The teacher corrects them if that is necessary.
The second task is to read a dialogue; there are two volunteers who will read the dialogue given
in the book. In this type of exercise all students are involved in the class work. They have to answer to
several questions which are connected whit the given dialogue.
The teacher-our colleague, is giving another task to make their own dialogue based on the
topic family members. For this task she give 3 minutes to complete the dialogue and then to read
aloud. This is useful for them because they will improve their skills with vocabulary.
Next exercise is to choose between True and False based on one text; firstly they should read
the.
The last task is to complete an exercise from the books, for this exercises she gives 5 min. and
then they should read aloud. The teacher is writing on the board things that are important to
remember.
My colleague closes the class with giving them assignment for homework.
Section D: Overall assessment of the quality of the lesson <is this a good lesson, why?>
The teacher was using mother language for the most of the time because the level of these
students isnt so high. However the class was fun, in a quick and good way were made exercise and
the. I believe that my colleague was satisfied with her presentation of the class.
Section E: Recommendation <how can the efficacy of the lesson be improved?>
I believe that just few of the students were active on the class, not because the student dont
know the names on the students, but because one part of the students werent interested on the class.
