Overseas School Observation Report

Please write about these various aspects of your school observation experience. Descriptions can include similarities and differences between Australia and Korea, general observations, or anything else that caught your attention.

Students - Student life, behavior and attitudes, interaction with others, happiness level

Teachers- Teaching style [speaking patterns, presence, mannerisms, energy level], teacher culture, fashion/decorum

Administrators - duties, relationship with faculty and students, leadership style

Classroom and School Dynamics- Environment, layout, design space decorations, ambiance, scheduling,  classroom management, discipline, unique qualities of a classroom or school, norms and expectations

Reminders of what not to do as a teacher
(Things I saw that I want to avoid in my classroom)

Language used in the classroom- challenging, useful, unusual
(Teacher Language I collected)

Useful techniques and strategies
(Things I saw that I want to try in my classroom)

Instructional materials - good, bad, non-existent
(Great resources and facilities I saw in action)

Big thoughts- education systems, reform possibilities

For next week, please prepare to describe and/or demonstrate one or two things you observed that were most impressive, useful, and/or applicable to your teaching. Feel free to work with your observation partner(s) and select the same activities.

End of class One-on-One Challenge. (observed in 7th grade math class)

A student volunteer stands and selects a classmate to challenge.  The teacher then asks a specific type of question (e.g. multiplication tables). The first student to answer two questions correctly wins.  A third student is assigned to be a ‘floating judge’ to determine who answered first.  Student rankings are adjusted after each match. The winning student then challenges another student.  

Adaption: For a language class, the types of questions asked could be related to vocabulary or a grammar form (e.g. past participle).  
Pros: Students seemed very eager to do this activity.  It could be used a reward or behavior motivation.  Useful for review.
Cons: Lower ranking student might be embarrassed or demotivated.  Some students didn’t even try to answer the questions.
