As per the B.ed curriculum we have 40 days of teaching practice in the fourth semester. This internship programme started on 12 November 2018. For myself I got a good platform- Government Higher Secondary School Kulathoor for flourishing my teaching skills.
Week 1 November 12 - 16
First day I got first period at my class VIII B. The supervising teacher gave me an activity to analyse the previous term question paper. Second period I had a substitution class at VIII A. In that class also I tried to discuss the question paper. The rest of the period I was engaged with lesson plan writing.
Second I didn’t have any class at VIII B. The majority of the students belongs to VIII B class were engaged with a programme conducted by the IT club. So I couldn’t able to conduct diagnostic test there.
Third day started with special morning assembly regarding Children’s day. The students belonged to the SPC and RED CROSS went for a rally organized by the educational department of Kerala. I got my first period at VIII B and I conducted diagnostic test successfully. The rest of the period I had substitution classes at IX A, XA, and VIII A.
Fourth day freshly started with morning prayer. First period of VIII B was mine. I started a poem- Song of the Flower written by Khalil Gibran. I used both Power point presentation and chart as my teaching aids. I played a beautiful video for the entry activity. I gave them poem writing as discourse construction. One group presented their material in the class. I tried to maintain the active participation of the students.
Fifth day started with morning assembly. As usual I got first period at VIII B and I took the rest of the lines of the poem Song of the flower. I used both Power point and Charts as teaching aids. Conversation writing was the classroom activity. Two groups presented their material.
