Reflection for the Day

("Little Moments of Love")

Thank You
One of the most important moments of love is when we
say "Thank You" and really mean it. We always feel closer to
someone when we say "Thanks." "Thank You" is like a little
ribbon that ties people together for that moment of
gratitude. One nun insisted that we say "Thank You,"
especially to janitors and workmen or people who had done
something for us. That shows we really care for them. St.
Paul was a great one for saying "Thank You," too. He wrote
to the Ephesians: "I thank God for you every time I think of

Reflection for the Day
Be Good With People
Good relationships make good people. The Desiderata,
which is the Latin word for "Things I Want" says, "Speak your
truth quietly and clearly." Let's not be afraid then to say what
we think, but let's say it truthfully and without bluster or
domination. Let's not be afraid to listen, either. Everyone has
something to teach us. Everyone needs to share what s/he
has with others - even those who are boring and tedious at
times. We have to take time to listen. It is one of the great
acts of loving among us.
The world is full of troubles, but it is also full of many
wonderful people. A few bad people should not blind us to
the fact that most people are truly good people - as good and
loving as we are ourselves.

Classroom Observation
(Bago, 2008)
Types of Observation

This requires the use of an instrument that limits the focus of
observation on the items specified in the measurement tool. It is
intended for summative evaluation of instruction as one of the bases
for arriving at an informed administrative decision.
This involves observing and recording classroom conditions, all
learning events, and all types of interaction between the teacher and
students, as well as among students.
This type of observation does not have predetermined
expectations on the focus of the exercise. This entails selective
recording of information using qualitative descriptions rather than
scores in rating scales.
Lenses of Classroom Observation
(Bago, 2008)
Learning Climate
- facilities and materials
- class rules and procedure observed by students
- interaction between teacher and students or among
- teacher's expectation of class

Classroom Management
- student behavior
- cleanliness and orderliness of the environment
- smooth flow of the lesson
- observance of class rules and procedure
Lesson Clarity
- sequence of lessons
- suitability of strategies
- effective use of audio-visual aids
- questioning techniques
- students' understanding of concepts or theories

- provisions for different modes of learning
- use of attention-getting devices
- variations in the use of nonverbal language
- different uses of rewards
Task Orientation
- maximization of instructional tasks
- effectiveness of the teacher in maintaining the
smooth flow of the lesson and in preventing student

Student Engagement
- exercises, problem sets, seatworks, group activities
- monitoring of activities
- provision of feedback to guide students
Student Success
- promptness of feedback and corrections
- maintenance of classroom pacing and

Higher Thought Processes

- assessment of activities and questions that
require critical thinking, reasoning, and
problem solving
Guiding Principles About Classroom Observation
(Bago, 2008)
1. Good supervision depends on reflective thought and
discussion of observed behavior.
2. The use of observation instruments provides teachers with
data on their classroom behaviors that enhance their
understanding of and commitment to instructional
3. Observation involves the factual description of what has
occurred, alongside its interpretation.
4. Conclusions about behavior should be based on the
description of behavior observed.
5. The choice of observation instrument is a collaborative
responsibility of both the supervisor and the teacher.
6. Observation is a skill developed through
training and practice.
7. Not all classroom behaviors can be observed.
8. Feedback is an essential element for
successful observation.
9. Multiple observations with different foci of
interests are necessary.
Evaluating Classroom Instruction
(Bago, 2008)

Types of Evaluation

The purpose of which is to determine effectiveness of
the delivery of instruction that will serve as basis for

The aim of which is for making administrative decisions
(promotion, hiring, merit pay, grant of tenure, reassignment,
and even dismissal).
Reflection: Pair Work
(1/2 crosswise)

1. As a supervisor, which among the lenses would you

like to focus on to observe beginning teachers?
seasoned teachers? Why?

2. Which among the principles about classroom

observation must be nurtured/enhanced by
supervisors? Why?
Guidelines for Developing a Measuring Instrument

1. The development of a measuring instrument is done

2. The purpose of evaluation is clarified by defining the
evaluation variables with specific sub-variables.
3. Measurable and observable indicators are identified for
each sub-variable.
4. The items are developed and then reviewed for content
and validity by experts.
5. The instrument is revised based on the comments and
suggestions of experts, as well as on statistical analysis
(factor analysis).
6. The revised draft is pilot-tested and is modified if there is
still feedback obtained during field testing.
7. A formal field test is conducted to assess reliability of the
Pair Work (1/2 crosswise)

1. Choose two areas on our topic lens of classroom

observation for your own supervisory task/assignment.
2. Explain your choice (1-2 sentences only).
3. What specific features would you like to focus on each
area? List them down according to their importance to you.
4. Construct a simple evaluation rubric to measure one area
you have chosen. Provide 5 specific item indicators or
statements with numerical ratings with corresponding
equivalent descriptions below.
Example of Descriptive Rating: 4 - Very Good; 3 - Good; 2 -
Fair/Average; 1 - Needs Improvement
