did you feel about discussing your observations with your colleague after the lesson? How did your
colleague react to your assessment? Did she agree with your evaluation? Which of the suggestions you
made will your colleague apply in her next lesson? Do you and your colleague feel that this was a
valuable experience? Why/Why not?

I felt great to observe and evaluate my colleague, Haya was a little bit nervous before the lesson, but
when she started to teach, she forget her nervousness and started to teach like a real teacher,
although she was very friendly with her students and helping them, and thats what made the last
period fun instead of bored lesson. Haya and I liked this experience because both of us had a chance to
learn something new from each other.
