INSTRUCTIONS

Answer the questions below. Try to be descriptive, not evaluative. Your answers should be brief and to
the point.

1. What were, in your opinion, the main aims of this lesson? Were they achieved? How do you

This lesson aims at evaluating how report speech , it was achieved because students participate
during the class, then they developed an exercise to increase and resolve doubts about the topic.

and behavior contribute to that atmosphere?

The atmosphere of the class was active, teachers and students participate with enthusiasm and
teacher’s personality and behavior contribute to generate confident and promote active
performance in the students.

3. Briefly describe the learners' general behavior/attitude and their involvement in activities and
tasks. What, in your opinion, most contributed to their behavior/attitude and their involvement?

In general learners were active during the classes, they participated and made questions to understand
better the topic. I think that teachers contributed to their behavior and their involvement during the
class because teacher encourage them, and for example in that classroom, they were who explain the
topic because they had already studied at home, so teachers helped them and reinforce some flaws that
they had about the topic but most of the time knowledge was built between students.
