Observing your lesson

Arrange for a colleague to observe a session.

If you are a trainee teacher, this will be part of your programme. Ask your observer to focus specifically on one aspect of planning that is being implemented. For example, you may want your observer to focus on the way that you are starting or finishing a session. You may want to focus on your use of differentiated activities. Use the checklists included in this chapter to discuss your observed session with your colleague or mentor.
