Classroom Observation

Hard Work Pays Off!

« That’s the first time I am invited to attend a project presentation. I am impressed by the work of the different groups. I am proud of my daughter who is a member of one group. I don’t understand the English language, but I understood the messages through the videos and the displaying pictures and other materials the groups have produced. Amazing!” said a father.

“What do you think of my son?” asked a mother among the guests. I hesitated to give my opinion for it is a collaborative work, but having the feeling of a parent I said, “I was really attracted by his way of speaking; he is both fluent and accurate. He also has a great sense of partnership.”

These are two reactions among others that happened on Wednesday 13th, 2009 in Kasdi Merbah High School, Oran during a project presentation session.

The second year scientific class divided into 6 groups presented their projects in front of an audience which includes the inspector of English, headteachers, the staff of teachers of English, teachers of other subjects and parents. The students demonstrated responsibility and independence in choosing very interesting and stimulating topics such as Shanty Towns, Child’s Rights, Drugs, Old age Home, Traffic Accidents, and Pollution. They also demonstrated skills in designing and presenting their final product. They show motivation and contribute to a feeling of cooperation and warmth during the presentation. They also show great capacities in organizing the physical setting, the arrangement of the room, the effective use of ICT, the t-shirts they wore and the ceremony which was well-thought out.

The feedback session was devoted to class interaction after the end of each project, and then many of the participants including inspector, headteacher, teachers and parents expressed their appreciation of the efforts that have been invested by the teachers and the students to get these incredible good results.

“We just need support and guidance, give us another chance next year to demonstrate more of our competencies that are still hidden,” said a student who gave me her t-shirt to sign my name on!
