In my development goals, I wrote about my ideal that teacher I want to be. My critical incidents show I have taught to children in some English class from 2014 to 2015. You can read my critical incidents in my teaching experience page.
Critical Incident 1(2014,Nakano ES): We enjoyed speaking English with a lot of students. Almost students who were grade 5 tried to talk with others.
Critical Incident 2(2014,Nakano ES): Our goal was having students to hear many English. they were not used to hearing foreign languages. So we prepare better lesson plan. Thanks to it, many students enjoy hearing and speaking English.
Critical Incident 3(2015,Fuzoku JHS):Through this experience, I noticed my two weak points and what I should do. First, I have a little bit experience of teaching in school. So, my instruction and classroom English is poor. I must learn them in university class and teaching practice in this summer. To add this, I need to think student's thought. Good teacher can care student's idea and condition. This care was lack in my teaching. So, I need to study more. Second, I need more flexible. I should think what is good for students, what is effective for them and how to attract them. I only thought to do class well. I consider about me. Teacher should think students most.
Finaly, I'll talk about specific things of what I learned in ETM. Firstly, I could learned the practical effects that appear when using English teaching techniques, as well as these techniqus' name. Owing to it, I could know merits and demerits of them.Secondly, I learned how to utilize these knowledge about English teaching and Engkish teaching for class,through the trials that I created lesson plans and consumed it.There were a lots of opportunities that I do English class, such as reading class, and grammar teaching class.I learned by trial and error. In ETM2, I made English lessons without sufficient reasons that students should do the activities in my lessons. However, because now I have the concrete image that English teaching techniques will work, I can make a English lesson based on concrete reasons that I adopt the activities in my lesson although it is not enough.Also, observation of Yosikado sensei's class had a great influence on me. In his class, students's eyes were shining and they participated the activities in the class. It means, I think, the students understood these activities well and they felt it was reasonable for their study. So I will learn how to convey students the reason of my lesson and to motivate students to participate my class.
