Students' Name: Jun and Min
Online Topics: Studyjams - Matter
ATTITUDE: So far, I have no problems with the attitudes of Jun and Min. They are very attentive and participate actively in our class. Even if they find the activity hard for them to do, still they managed to do it and follow the instructions correctly. I can see their eagerness to learn Science topics. I just hope this will improve more.
Jun and Min are at Developing level with respect to their communication skill. They are still many words that they need to learn in order to develop more their comprehension skill. Although our topics are about Science, having good knowledge and skill in English is quite important for them to learn and perform well during our classes. They are both good in all learning activities that we had and I believe they can be better if they are proficient in English. Understanding during class discussion would be best if there is no language barrier. Just make sure to continue learning English. Keep it up!
READING: Although, I am not teaching English subject, ,but I would still consider their reading skill since this is very important skill to acquire meaningful learning in Science lessons. I observed that their reading skill are at approaching proficiency, though Min can read more English words than Jun. There are still many words that they are not too familiar with and sometimes they tend to mumble the words if they are not sure how to read it properly. Good thing about them is that they immediately follow teacher's correction and apply it the next time they would encounter the same words again.
COMPREHENSION: Though, they still have difficulty understanding the English language, what is good about them is they really find their own ways to understand my explanation by searching on the internet the Korean translations of the terms they are not familiar with. When we wil be having an assessment after our discussion, they were able to get very high score, which means that they really comprehend the lesson. From this, I would could say that language is not a barrier in learning as long as you are willing to learn and explore.
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION: I am not teaching English but I used to correct their speaking and pronunciation as well. I can say that they their speaking and pronunciation skills are at approaching proficiency. They can already express their thoughts with confidence. What they need to work out more are their vocabulary and the correct choice of words.
RECOMMENDATIONS/COMMENTS: As a teacher who really wants to see your improvements, I would like to suggest to watch English movies or programs to widen more your vocabulary and learn how to pronounce and speak the words correctly. Reading Science book is a good option too since I would like to develop also your vocabulary in Science terms. Just be open-minded and be good observers not just during our Science classes but also in your surroundings. It is good to improve your curiosity. That is actually one of the attitudes of the Scientists. Be patient and be optimistic in every task that we do. Science subject is not really hard, just enjoy it while learning. It is also good to take down notes in every session so you may have copies of our lesson and may review it if you have free time.
FUTURE GOALS: The teacher will be preparing more interactive games and activites to have meaningful and enjoyable learning during our class.
