1. As I have observed, the age of the learners do not vary talking about their behavior
and characteristics for the reason that I witnessed there are some students who are very
participative and cooperative in the class but there are also students who do not
involved themselves in class discussion.
2. In one classroom that I have observed, the number of girls is greater than the number
of boys. Students can move freely.
3. Some of them can managed their own behavior already by showing total self-
discipline especially when it comes to class discussion but there are also students who
like to wait for their teacher to remind them to stop doing things which could destruct
their classmates attention.
4. Ofcourse yes, they can handle and accomplished task it if is only self clarifying but
some of them can no longer worked independently when it comes to a serious type of
task which needs the guidance and helped of others.
5. The span of students’ attention depends on how the teacher motivates the whole
class. Just what other students says, they would only participate in the class if the
teacher is jolly and enthusiastic. But in contrast, I came to think; that this statement may
depends on how a certain student involved himself/herself in the classroom discussion.
6. Most of the students pay attention to their teacher; they lend their senses every time
the teacher is conducting a lesson. That is why; they can answer the question of their
teacher when asking them a certain question according to what they touched in lecture.
3. An Observation Guide for the Classroom Visit
Be guided by these questions as you do your observation of the classroom
management. It is also good to ask the teacher for additional information so you can verify your
observation. Write your notes below, and then organize your data in the table that follows.
1. Are there areas in the classroom for specific purposes (storage of teaching aids,
books, students’ belongings, supplies, etc.)
2. Are there rules and procedures in the room.
3. Did the students participate in making the classroom rules?
4. What are the daily routines done by the teacher? (prayer, attendance, assignment of
monitors, warm-up activities, etc.) How are they done?
5. Is there a setting arrangement? What is the basis of this arrangement?
6. Observe the noise level of the classroom. How is this managed?
7. If a learner is not following instructions or is off-task, what does the teacher do?
8. What does the teacher do to reinforce positive behaviors? (behavior strategies)
1. The classroom area planned and ordered.
2. The classroom rules are posted in the wall of the room thus every student will be

3. The teacher starts the class with an opening prayer, followed by checking of

5. Your Analysis
1. How did the classroom organization and routines affect the learners’ behavior?
The classroom organization and routines affects the behavior of the learner’s in
their five human aspects. It is because when the classroom is organized and routines are
always done by the teacher and the students. Thus, those students who don’t have
higher attention before will gradually change especially for those who are not fond of
joining the activity made by the teacher.
2. What should the teacher have in mind when she/designs the organization and
routines? What theories and principles should you have in mind?
I think the teacher should bear in his/her that daily organization and routines
depend on the age the learner. Since there are also students who possessed different
actions, characteristics, and behavior when it comes to daily routines which used by the
teacher. Furthermore, the teacher should design routines that fit to the students and the
principles of Jean Piaget theory and principles are very applicable on this.
3. What behavior strategies were effective in managing the behavior of the learners?
In motivating the students? Why were they effective?
In my own opinion, it is very effective when the teacher should be strict in terms
of class discussion because as I have observed, this could help the learner to strive hard
and to ensure themselves to participate in the discussion. And it is also a matter of
discipline for students who feel tired in school especially for those students who are fond
of “pawala lang” and not giving the value of how education can change their lives and
their future. Therefore, I can say that this is very effective in motivating the attention of
the students who have less able in attention in the classroom.
6. Your Reflections
1. Imagine yourself organizing your classroom in the future. In what grade/year level do you
see yourself? What routines and procedures would you consider for this level? Why?
I see myself teaching fourth year students. Similar to others, I will do the same routines
which are very applicable in my students. The routines that I will consider for this level are the
following: First, I will start my class with an opening prayer; praying that my students will
participate and cooperate in my class, secondly, I will check their attendance; for me to know
who are absent and late, thirdly, by asking my students about the previous meeting discussion,
then I will ask him/her to give a brief explanation from the previous topic. And lastly, I will
proceed to the new topic to be discussed. If my students have no more questions about the
topic, subsequently I will give them a short quiz for me to determine who among of the class
understand the lessons clearly.
2. Make a list of the rules you are likely to implement in this level. Why would you choose
The following are the rules that I want to implement
in my class:
1. Eating during class hours is not allowed.
2. Talking while the teacher is discussing is taboo.
3. Students are not allowed to enter the class without wearing their proper uniform and ID.
4. Ignorance of the law excuses no one.
5. Encourage the students to speak in English.
6. Male students are not allowed to wear earrings and dangling in my classroom.
7. Both male and female students must observe personal hygiene and neatness at all times.
8. Male students must observe proper haircut.
9. Students are entrusted when to clean the room before leaving.
10. Students are not allowed to answer in chorus.
Well, I desired to choose these rules because I want to have a harmonious classroom
establishing rapport with unity, peace, and order between me and my future students someday.
3. Should learners be involved in making the class rules? Why?
Absolutely yes, the students should be involved in making class rules and regulations for
the reason that they should be aware of such things also, in order for the students to be well-
oriented and have an idea already whatever sanctions might be given if ever they will violate the
said rules and implementations inside the classroom and so that the teacher will have no further
explanations since it is already agreed between the teacher and the students.
