5 Bits of Advice About: Observations

  1. Pay little attention to cynical older teachers, observations are a chance to move forward with your teaching.
  2. Prepare well, but teach as you would normally. Don’t stress yourself out, you are meant to be making mistakes
  3. Attitude is often more important than aptitude so be humble. You will have development points, a good observer will try and lead you to realising these.
  4. Ask questions. You are learning to do a difficult thing.
  5. Make whatever your development points are the focus of your efforts for the next term. Your observer will want to see them improving in the next observation.
