Please add the class code, room number and the initials of the teacher in charge of the lesson when
completing the timetable (see example in Monday 1)

Please email one copy to the trainee teacher and send a second copy to Nathan Eades and David

Giving feedback following lesson observation

Good feedback is the outcome of a professional dialogue. You may wish to focus initially on an
aspect of the lesson which was particularly successful e.g. "Pupils really enjoyed the debate on..."
and then focus the discussion by relating what has been observed to the original intentions e.g.
"You wanted pupils to understand that there were a number of causes of the Peasants’ Revolt. Did
they respond as you expected?"

Open-ended questions are useful in encouraging dialogue between the mentor and the trainee
and help to guide the thinking. Help the trainee to review the lesson by asking probing questions
e.g.

13
Markham College – Initial Teacher Training Programme
MITT Programme
 Were the outcomes of the lesson as you expected?
 What did you think was the most successful part of the lesson?
 Were you disappointed with any part of the lesson?
 What did you think that the lower attaining pupils gained from the lesson? The most able?
 Why did you think that?
 What changes would you have wanted to make, with hindsight?
 Help me to understand your thinking when you...
 Why did you select that activity to?
 What influenced your choice of?
 Did you consider other strategies?
 What will you do now?

Feedback structure:

1. Illustrate the general observation with specific and practical examples from the observation
2. Be prepared to offer positive suggestions, which the trainee has the option to follow

3. Where your evaluation differs from the trainee's your 'evidence' will be crucial

Summarise the discussion:

 "We agreed that the strengths of the lesson are.." ·


 "Agreed areas for development are.."

Remember:

 Strengths and weaknesses should always be linked to their effect on learning and be
attributed to the teaching approaches used
 Record any action to be taken on the observation sheet
 Always provide trainees with a copy of the recorded observation sheet to be kept in their
Teaching Practice file

A suitable set of tasks have been well thought out

Teaching (with specific reference to subject pedagogy)

15
Markham College – Initial Teacher Training Programme
MITT Programme

Pascale kicked off the lesson with a starter which comprised of students sitting in groups and
4 examining a picture from Peru (each group had a different picture). Pascale had purposely
selected a diverse range of images, some with quite wealthy looking buildings, and others with
poorer looking infrastructure.
Students were given the task of writing down 5 key words which their groups associated with the
image.

As this was a computer room session, Pascale’s class became a little distracted by the computers
being in front of them and had to re-focus the students back onto the task.

Once the time was up, Pascale invited each group to share the 5 key words from their photograph
6 at the same time as showing a larger version of each image on the whiteboard. As students
responded, Pascale wrote the key words onto the board. By the end of the activity, the board was
full of information. This was a nice example of formative assessment which Pascale used to inform
herself about the level of understanding from the class’s previous lesson. The following key terms
appeared on the board:
 MEDC
 LEDC
 Poverty
 Overpopulated
 Sparsely populated
 Moderately populated
This was an excellent starter activity which Pascale should continue to develop. When Pascale and
1
I spoke about the success of the activity, she seemed pleasantly surprised by the level of response
from the students and rightly so.
3
Throughout this activity, I noticed Pascale give more “wait” time between her questioning-
2
sometimes saying “thank you to the students who have their hands up, but I would like to hear a
response from all students, so I shall wait a while a longer for you to consider my question” This
resulted in a lot more participation from her students.
Pascale rounded this activity up nicely with a discussion about the image that these photos give
Peru- some giving the impression that Peru is poor and some giving the impression that Peru is
wealthy. Pascale eventually summarised that Peru is LEDC but has elements of MEDC and HEDC.

Pascale shared the Lesson objectives with her students next, then explained the task before
sharing the success criteria with the class.

Pascale’s main task today was a well thought out and well resourced activity. Pascale had
emailed the students some resources which provided information about: Peru- GNP, population
density, average life expectancy etc. The students were instructed to complete a fact sheet about
Peru concluding whether it is LEDC or MEDC with a justification. To aid the understanding of the
activity, Pascale gave students an electronic and printed copy of the success criteria and a list of
information which she expected to be on the fact sheet. Students were engaged and worked well.

Pascale ended the lesson with a fun, interactive SMART board activity which linked key words
from today’s activity and lesson objectives with a fun game.

Suggested
When taking students into a computer room, think about the extra distractions which the timescale
students will begin to play with and how to prevent this.

When sharing lesson objectives and success criteria, make sure you spend your time to ensure Immediate
that you have explained them clearly.
