Last week on the 19th of July 2012 I went for the Lesson Study course. It was amazing.
I just want to share with you guys my own experience. Lesson study actually involves small groups of teachers (4-6 teachers) meeting at stipulated times to plan, implement, evaluate, and revise lesson plan in a collaborative manner. It is on-going practice in Japan especially in elementary and middle schools.In that course, one of the sessions was the hands-on activity where we were supposed to try it out in a near by school. Guess what!!! I was the person chosen to do the first tryout lesson in a school in Kuala Lumpur. You know what it was very scary and testing moment in my life. So many teachers were around me watching me. The pupils really enjoyed the story i told them and they could actually answer all my questions. The activity where pupils had actually did role-play was a very amazing activity because they did it quite well.
Later, all the teachers in my group did some discussions and we were reviewing the lesson and the pupils learning and respond. Teachers should not feel sensitive about the comment given by our friends whereas take it positively for our future successful performance. That's all to share. Hope you guys could learn something from this. God Bless.
