My strength in this lesson is that I have been using interesting and colorful pictures, videos and songs for this lesson. These teaching tools also attracted my students’ attention during the teaching and learning process and thus helped me in my learning objectives. They seem eager to answer my questions and discuss the characters that they saw in the story I showed to them. Therefore, my class during the learning process was under controlled and the lesson went smoothly. Other than that, I also was giving them clear and simple questions when it comes to the questioning stage. I also gave each of them opportunity to answer my questions so that they will have opportunity to give their own answers. Although, not all of them were able to answer my question using the proper English, they still tried to answer even using BM. Lastly, I also discussed about some moral values in the story with them and guided them how to apply the values in their daily life

Weaknesses :
My first weakness is my time management. I have set the time for each stage but I cannot run successfully. I have to skip my closure because I don’t have enough time anymore. This is because I spent a lot of time in the questioning and discussion stage. My other weakness is my set induction. I found out that I have failed to attract my students during the set induction as what a set induction supposed to be. They only started to attract in my lesson during the presentation stage when I asked them to come in front and sing a song before watch the story.


After listing all my strengths and weaknesses in his lesson, I realized that I need to improve all my weaknesses so that I can provide more effectives teaching learning process fir the next lesson. I will provide activities that according to the time allocated for each stages to avoid from the time redundant problem. I will also provides an interesting and attractive 5 minutes activity for the set induction as what it suppose to be. A set induction is a vital component in an English class because from the set induction, I can lure or attract the students towards my lesson and make my lesson more meaningful. Without a good set induction, my lesson may not be as interesting and comprehensible for my students.
