Upper Elementary Mathematics LessonThis video clip shows a class conducted by one teacher to four students, three being male and one being female from 10 to 13 years old. The students seem to have no noticeable physical or mental disability and can be defined as sound minds. They also seem to possess a certain level of exceptional academic skills and a moderate understanding of what their teacher is teaching them. The educators’ management skills are more focused on the subject matter than engaging the students in activities that draw their attention back to the class. Some of the students are seen talking, others yawning and playing with sticks while the teacher is trying to help one of the students. Also, despite being in an academic class, some of the students in the background wear their headphones while working on their laptops which might distract the students who are being trained. However, the teacher displays immense skills of controlling the learners once she notices that they are not attentive to the class activity. In this case, I partially disagree with the teacher’s management skills as she should have ensured that the students were in a conducive environment with more minor disturbances. These techniques applied by the teacher seemed to be less effective to the students. Some seemed to struggle to concentrate on the classwork for more extended periods. The information gained from this particular class will assist me in learning how to handle a group class and engage all the students equally in the classwork. Also, it is important to observe the effect of the environment in which I choose to conduct my classes. This video affirmed the importance of physically and mentally engaging the students to draw their attention back to class.
