  1. 1. FS 1 The Learner’s Development and Environment FS 1 The Learner’s Development and Environment Episode 3 CLASSROOM MANAGEMENTAND LEARNING Name of FS Student: Ruschelle L. Cossid Course: BSED – ENGLISH Year & Section: 1st Year Resource Teacher: Mrs. Rowena Magdayao Date: February 5, 2014 Cooperating School: Digos City National High School  My Map To reach your target, do the following tasks:  Observe a class.  Using a checklist, find out the evident classroom components.  Describe how the classroom is structured/designed to allow everyone to participate in the learning activities.  Relate the data in your checklist to the learner’s behavior.  Reflect on how classroom management affects learning.
  2. 2. FS 1 The Learner’s Development and Environment  My Tools Use the activity form provided for you to document your observations. An Observation Guide for the Learners’ Characteristics Read the following statements carefully. Then write your observation report on the provided space. 1. As you observe the class, look into the characteristics of the learners. Nothe their ages. 2. How many boys are there? How many girls? 3. Focus on their behavior. Are they already able to manage their own behavior? 4. Can the learners already work independently? 5. Describe their span of attention. 6. Look into their listening skills and ability to concentrate. Name of the School Digos City National High School Observed IV – Aquino Location of the School Rizal Avenue, Digos City Date of Visit February 6, 2014 As I observed the class, I can see that the learners sometimes need additional motivation to keep their attention focused and avoid doing something in their seats. Their ages ranges from 15- 18 years old. There are 22 boys and 18 girls in the room. Most of the boys seated at the back are noisy, they can manage their own behavior but they will just settle down if the teacher already warns them. In quizzes, I can see some students who can’t work independently but I know that they’re trying to answer and understand the quiz. Their span of attention is so short so you need to make some way to keep the students focused on the class. They can’t concentrate very well because of some destruction but they’re trying to listen.
  3. 3. FS 1 The Learner’s Development and Environment An Observation Guide for the CLASROOM VISIT Be guided by these questions as you do your observation of the classroom management. It is also good to ask the teacher for additional information so you can verify your observation. Write your notes below; and then organize your data in the table that follows. 1. Are there areas in the classroom for specific purposes (storage of teaching aids, books, students’ belongings, supplies, etc.). Describe these areas. In the classroom, I can see a cabinet used for the storage of their brooms, there’s also one table at the back where students can pit their tings. I think the room needs more things that will serve as storage area. 2. Are there rules and procedures posted in the room? There are no rules and procedures posted in the room but the teacher herself always reminds the students about the rules and procedures in the class. Students are aware of the rules so some of them are not stubborn. 3. Did the students participate in making the classroom rules? (Ask the Resource Teacher) I can see that the students really participate in making the classroom rules because they really follow what their teacher says. Only few of the students are not sometimes following the rules but I think they can be managed. 4. What are the daily routines done by the teacher? (prayer, attendance, assignment of monitors, warm-up activities, etc. How are they done? When the teacher comes in , everyone will now stand and someone will lead the prayer then after that, the good morning greeting will follow, then checking of assignments then sometimes the teacher does some warm-up activities then introduces the new lesson. 5. Is there a seating arrangement? What is the basis of this arrangement? As I observed their seating arrangement, I think that they have no seating arrangements. I observed that the majority of the girls are at the front while the boys are seated at the back. Boys who are seated at the back are commonly noisy.
