As I entered the classroom on the first day, I was greeted by an array of Romanian props, some of which included: Traditional Romanian folk music also contributed to setting the mood.
All of these elements made me feel immersed in the Romanian culture, and eager to learn. The classroom seating arrangement was set up in the same fashion for every lesson; Carola chose to place the desks in a horseshoe shape, thus facilitating group discussions, while still prompting students to face forward for teacher-directed instruction.
She utilised the classroom space, making use of the white board, projector and computer. Carola also transformed the classroom wall, creating as an extension to the white board. From day one, Carola appeared open and approachable, using appropriate body language, facial expressions, eye contact, and continuously smiling.
This created a relaxed atmosphere, and made the whole class feel at ease. She spoke loud and clear, ensuring everyone heard her voice. Carola used a variety of techniques in order to evaluate that students understood her.
She often paused for reply and engaged eye contact with students.
She addressed everyone by name, which quickly established rapport among T and S, as well as making it easier for her to nominate students. Carola was very active during class, often taking advantage of the space in the classroom.
During group activities, she walked around paying attention to each group, monitoring students, but keeping a respectable distance. During paired activities, she would crouch down near students to listen and speak. Carola motivated students by using a variety of props, activities, and groupings.
This engaged students in the lessons, and encouraged input. She also used different colour markers for each day, which was a great tool for referencing. She often used paralinguistic clues throughout her lessons, communicating answers and encouraging student participation.
This in turn, proved to be a great method in eliciting answers from students. Carola promoted drilling, often creating lockstep situations. This helped improve our pronunciation, as well as ensuring we had absorbed what was taught.
Concept questions were used to ensure we understood the lexis, and also introduced us to new vocabulary. She highlighted errors in a subtle manner, and created an environment where students felt it was acceptable to make mistakes.5% Unknown Language Journal; 10% Lesson Observation Journal; 10% Grammar Test; 10% Phonology Test; On Site Support.
