ESL Classroom Observation Manual.
Terdal, Marjorie S.; Douglas, Prudence
This observation manual is meant to be used by English as a second language teacher-trainees observing classroom teachers at a college or university and by the teachers being observed. In the introductory material some of the literature on teaching effectiveness and coding procedures is discussed. It is noted that most educators who have been involved with classroom observation instruments divide classroom behaviors into cognitive and affective domains. The two main parts of the form described here correspond roughly with cognitive and affective behaviors. The form includes both verbal and non-verbal behaviors of both teachers and students under the headings, "Classroom Management" and "Learning Environment." The observer is required to check the presence or absence of a particular behavior or activity and to give examples as he or she checks. The sections of the form are described in detail, and the form designed for use with a practicum at a community college is shown in the appendix. (AMH)
