REFLECTIVE PRACTICE OF THE SIWES PROGRAM I UNDERGONE

 

Description: I am currently on a teaching practice placement in an adult education college in the south-west of England, learning how to teach Management Science to various groups of adults. As my placement is in the early stages, I am mainly assisting the class tutors and have just started planning and delivering a small part of each lesson.

Feelings: I was so embarrassed and upset by my own inability to speak in front of the group, but I was also extremely angry with the class teacher for her response in the presence of the students. I felt afterwards that she had not given me sufficient time to compose myself, and that she should have allowed me to address my nerves.

Evaluation: At the time, I did not feel that the situation had been resolved at all. I very deliberately left at the end of the class without speaking to the class teacher or the learners. I realized that everyone feels nervous before their first few classes.

Analysis: The situation was made worse by both my own actions and those of the class teacher. I feel that I should have stood up to her, rather than letting her take control of the lesson, and that I should have spoken to her immediately after the lesson about how I was feeling. She claimed that she had thought she was helping me to overcome my anxieties, but I do not believe that to be the case.

Conclusion: In retrospect, I would do several things differently. I should have spoken to the class teacher immediately after the session and voiced my opinions. I should also have been more assertive by advising the tutor that I could continue with the lesson. However, the incident made me realize the importance of building up a relationship with the teacher. If I had developed a professional relationship with the teacher in the preceding weeks, I would have been able to explain how nervous I was beforehand.

Action: In future, I will ensure that I build up a relationship with colleagues. I am working alongside several different teachers during my placement, and I intend to speak to each of them about my nerves. This experience has made me realize that I need to gain more confidence with presenting, and I feel addressing my presentation skills will help me to do this.
